United Way is pleased to announce the appointment of Patricia D. Hausknost as Chair of the Women Leaders Cabinet for the 2012-2013 campaign season!

Patricia is a highly-respected member of the business community with more than 38 years of experience in the banking industry. Holding an MBA from Chicago’s Loyola University, she moved to Southern California in 1998 and is currently a Senior Vice President at the Los Angeles-based City National Bank.

In addition to becoming a Certified Financial Planner and teaching courses at UCLA Extension in her spare time, Patricia has made invaluable contributions to UWGLA’s Women Leaders – an influential network of local businesswomen who are committed to breaking the cycle of poverty in L.A. County.

This past May, Patricia participated in United Way’s first annual Career Day at El Sereno Middle School and was the opening speaker at the Women Leaders 2012 Spring Breakfast which featured special guest, LAUSD Board President Monica Garcia.

Originally founded in 2001, Women Leaders is a socially-conscious affinity group with nearly 600 members which raises an average of $1.7 million per year for United Way’s Creating Pathways Out of Poverty fund.
