Empower Your Team

For over a decade, United Way of New York City’s Power of Women to Make a Difference Award Luncheon has served as a dynamic gathering for New York City’s powerful women. An amazing event, bringing together industry leaders from across sectors, the Luncheon provides a unique opportunity to not only interact with key influencers in our City, but also to engage your employees.

The iconic ambiance of New York City’s landmark Ziegfeld Ballroom serves as the backdrop, as we celebrate the impact we are making together in the lives of our City’s most-challenged neighbors. We then encourage you to go beyond the luncheon and be a part of United Way of New York City’s WOMEN UNITED—a network of accomplished, community-driven women, dedicated to making a difference in the lives of struggling New Yorkers.

Women who join WOMEN UNITED collaborate with an exclusive organization of female thought-leaders here in NYC, and across the globe with more than 70,000 members worldwide. Members gain access to impactful events focused on education, health, and financial stability, and showcase expertise through skills-based volunteer opportunities. Picture yourself, or a representative from your business, attaining the opportunity both professionally and personally to become a leader through fundraising, advocating, and volunteering.

As champions for education, WOMEN UNITED advocates for ReadNYC, a UWNYC program designed to improve grade-level reading by third grade—a critical milestone in a child’s future success. Your company can be a part of the network that to date has raised over $5 million for youth empowerment in NYC.

Additionally, WOMEN UNITED is a wonderful way to engage employees outside of the workplace in affinity groups, complimenting your company’s own corporate social responsibility committees. Working together, we can align our interests and offer you and your employees a comprehensive suite of engagement opportunities that not only empower and excite, but also make a measurable impact on our community.

Don’t miss this opportunity to join us as we celebrate the 13th year of this signature, must-attend NYC event.
