Women Leaders

Women Leaders is an exclusive network of business leaders, entrepreneurs and community leaders who share United Way’s vision to end poverty in Los Angeles through housing, education and jobs. Women Leaders donate at least $2,500 annually to United Way’s Creating Pathways Out of Poverty fund. They engage in hands-on volunteer activities, champion advocacy efforts and participate in a variety of networking events throughout the year.



Women Leaders leverage the collective power and leadership of women to produce visible impact by Creating Pathways Out of Poverty in greater Los Angeles.


Women Leaders seek to energize and inspire women to make a difference, as philanthropic and civic leaders, community advocates and financial investors, by creating pathways out of poverty in our community.

Community Impact

United Way of Greater Los Angeles’ mission is to permanently break the cycle of poverty for our most vulnerable neighbors: families, students, veterans and the homeless. United Way is invested in permanent solutions focusing on housing, education and income stability. In recent years, Women Leaders have placed an emphasis on supporting United Way’s efforts to improve educational achievement.
