HFUW.orgEvents | Womens' Leadership Luncheon

 

2013_Window_MainPage_WLL_Post.png


More than 700 prominent Central Florida business and civic leaders joined keynote speaker and best-selling author Erin Gruwell for the 7th Annual Women’s Leadership Luncheon in March, hosted by Heart of Florida United Way’s Women’s Leadership Council. The event raised more than $100,000, which will be invested in United Way’s local education and literacy initiatives.

 

Gruwell, author of the New York Times best-seller The Freedom Writers Diary, described her journey as a teacher with 150 high school students who were labeled as “unteachable.” Her inspiring true story was the basis for the film Freedom Writers. From her career as a high school teacher to being portrayed by Oscar-winner Hilary Swank, Gruwell shared her experiences that led her to become an education advocate.

 

The luncheon is the latest in a series of United Way Women’s Leadership Council events intended to raise awareness, funds and volunteer support to address challenges that disproportionately affect women and children in Central Florida. Over the next three years – in alignment with United Way’s National Women’s Leadership Council – this group is focused on improving education outcomes in Central Florida. The Council is chaired by Karen Dee, Florida and Mid-South regional president at Fifth Third Bank, and Vice Chair Pat Engfer, area vice president and general manager at Hyatt Regency, Grand Cypress.
