United Way of Salt Lake Women's Leadership Council (WLC) is inviting everyone to the "Power of Your Purse". It's an annual gala to help the Council in their goal to support and inspire young women to achieve their potential through education.
The Women's Leadership Council (WLC) was created in 2006 and is an affiliate of United Way Worldwide National Women's Leadership Council. The WLC is comprised of successful women who donate time and resources to help ensure young women get the support they need to achieve academic success. There are currently 211 members who last year invested more than $460,000 to benefit the organization and spent more than 500 hours volunteering in classrooms and serving as mentors and tutors.
The Council will welcome Keynote speaker Jane Pauley, who is an author, philanthropist and one of the most respected figures in American broadcast journalism. A student panel of young women will also offer their perspective on the benefits of post-secondary education. Many of them are first-generation high school graduates and first-generation college students.
