Announcing…Our 2014 United Way 35 Under 35 Women’s Leadership Program Participants

United Way of Cass-Clay is proud to announce the 2014 United Way 35 Under 35 Women's Leadership Program Participants! 

The purpose of the United Way 35 Under 35 Women's Leadership Program is to mobilize the caring power of women, energize and inspire emerging leaders to make a difference, and to provide opportunities to deepen leadership opportunities for local young women. The program is designed to build networks and strengthen connections to improve the quality of life in the Cass-Clay community.

The 35 young women chosen to participate will meet once each month and participate in sessions focusing on various issues pertinent to young female leaders. Each session is led and presented by volunteers and local leaders and includes topics relating to communication, public speaking, defining leadership, community leadership and philanthropy. The first session will be held in January of 2014. 

Congratulations to the 35 women chosen to participate in 2014!
