Women’s Leadership Breakfast


Creating tomorrow’s leaders through the power of women in philanthropy.


The 2017 Women’s Leadership Breakfast will be held on Wednesday, October 11th at the Westin Waterfront. 

United Way’s Women’s Leadership Breakfast is the premier event for women in philanthropy in the Greater Boston area, bringing together more than 1,000 business and community leaders to raise awareness and support for vital programs in our region. Together, we are doing more than any of us can do alone!

Hosted by United Way’s Women United group, this annual Breakfast harnesses the power of women in philanthropy to “Create Tomorrow’s Leaders.” It attracts a “Who’s Who” of the region’s most powerful women, bringing together important local leaders to connect, share, and raise funds, while enjoying an inspirational morning.


  • The Impact: Create Tomorrow’s Leaders. Through the power of Women United, your participation does more than any of us could do alone – giving more young people the opportunity, support, and confidence to become a leader in his or her own community.
  • The Inspiration: Enjoy an empowering keynote and inspirational stories that will stay with you long after the coffee is gone. You will also hear stories that highlight how your support is creating positive, lasting change for people in need.
  • The Connection: Meet and network with more than 1,000 women leaders from a variety of communities, industries and top companies in our region.


Overcoming Challenges Breakout Sessions
Breakfast attendees will have the option to participate in breakout sessions following the program. Led by leaders in the community, these sessions will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn about challenges in the community, and be part of the solution. From equal pay for women to ending homelessness, there’s no shortage of challenges to tackle.

Thank you to those who attended the 2016 Women’s Leadership Breakfast! Your leadership, passion, and energy is helping to create tomorrow’s leaders, one young person at a time.
