Inaugural Women United Fellows
Announcing the Women United Fellows
We are excited to announce our inaugural class of Women United Fellows! The Meredith E. Level Fellows Program connects emerging female business leaders with opportunities to improve the community alongside like-minded philanthropic women.
The Fellows Program was implemented to honor the legacy and memory of Meredith E. Level. Meredith was a community champion, philanthropist and founding member of Heart of Florida United Way’s Women United. She was a beloved partner at Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor & Reed with a solid reputation as a leader of the firm’s charitable endeavors.
