Celebrate the Power of Women United!
United Way of Northern New Jersey Women's Leadership Council is hosting our second annual Regional Breakfast! The Council is part of a global network of 70,000 philanthropic businesswomen and community leaders. This annual regional fundraiser brings together dynamic and community-minded women from across northern New Jersey, while advancing our efforts to support scholarships for ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households. These scholarships help defray costs of child care and continuing education. The Council supports these community members who work hard but do not earn enough to afford basic needs so that they can achieve financial stability and provide a good life for their families.
Special Guest Speaker
We are thrilled to announce that joining us as our keynote speaker will be the national chair of United Way Women's Leadership Council, Maria Blet, Wealth Advisory Managing Director at BDO. Maria is a truly inspiring speaker who is very excited to address the growth and power of women philanthropists, a subject for which she has a strong personal passion. Her dedication to United Way Women's Leadership Council and her genuine enthusiasm for the work being done by the Council here in northern New Jersey are exciting and infectious.
ALICE Scholarship Recipients
Scholarship recipient Sebastian Galvez, who spoke so poignantly at last year's Breakfast, will share the incredible opportunities that have come his way since then thanks to the Council angels watching over him. Sebastian will also introduce some of this year's ALICE scholarship recipients.
