The Women's Leadership Council (WLC) is a network of community-driven women dedicated to making a difference in the lives of New Yorkers. WLC members champion United Way of New York City’s education work, with a focus on the ReadNYC initiative. The group’s annual luncheon honors the achievements of outstanding women leaders whose professional accomplishments are matched by their commitment to philanthropy and giving back to their community.
In 2017, the Luncheon honored: Kris Deiglmeier, CEO, Tides, Jacki Kelley, COO, Bloomberg Media, and Maroa C. Velez, Partner & Head of Service Delivery, BBH.
Net proceeds from this signature event support United Way of New York City’s education initiatives, serving thousands of young people across the five boroughs each year.
