On October 10th, the Student Leadership Network hosted its thirteenth (Em)Power Breakfast. This breakfast celebrated the organizations students and their academic achievements. More than 9,000 girls who are impacted by the Young Women’s Leadership Schools in New York City and 15 Young Women’s Leadership Network were celebrated. This breakfast also celebrated business and philanthropic leaders who are committed to breaking the cycle of poverty through equalizing education.
Ann Tisch, SL Network Founder and President said “This annual event underscores our mission at TYWLS to provide young women with the best educational opportunities and resources to develop into the next generation of innovations, change agents, and leaders.”
TYWLS has helped give about $150 million in scholarships and financial aid for students going to college since 2001. These students have graduated from college at nearly four times the rate of their peers.
The (Em)Power Breakfast would not have been possible without help and support from Proskauer, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Fairstead, Estee Lauder Companies, Paul Weiss, Richard Cohen, Andrew Farkas, Fredda Cassell and Jim Maher, and Brad Ruskin.Read More
