WLI EVENT SPOTLIGHT:
ADVISORY COUNCIL IN NYC

In January, members of the WLI Advisory Council convened in New York City for a conversation guided by The 95th Anita M. Perlman International N’siah, Emily Kolodney, and Advisory Council Chair Diane Greenwald. Together, we explored why women's leadership is such an important issue for teens today and how to best support a global movement of BBG teens and alumni.

 

EXPLORE WLI EVENTS

Over the year, the Advisory Council hosted a series of events featuring prominent women in leadership. In conversation with teen leaders, these women shared lessons and insights gleaned from their personal experiences, exploring topics from financial empowerment to the impact of the #metoo movement to the challenges of balancing work and personal life.

WLI EVENT SPOTLIGHT:

Perlman Women's Leadership Initiative with a remarkable slate of events – including a panel discussion with industry pioneers on the role of women in philanthropy; a reception celebrating women leaders and the 75th anniversary of BBG; and roundtable discussions with teens on the power of mentorship.
