|United Way: Women's Leadership Initiative|
If you are a woman looking for a way to make a real difference in the community, there’s a unique way for you to help. It’s the Women’s Leadership Initiative, an organization designed by women – through United Way of Washtenaw County
The WLI has opportunities in the areas of Advocacy, Marketing & Communication, Membership & Engagement, Volunteering and Special Events.
The WLI sponsors a special event each year - The Power of the Purse. To us, the Power of the Purse means one thing - Helping women achieve their potential
Research demonstrates that when a family in our community is struggling, whether it’s financially, emotionally, or with health care or safety issues, it’s often the women who bear the brunt of responsibility for holding things together.
The WLI is a way to reach out to women in our community, who bear a disproportionate share of the burden.
These women need a group of community-minded women who focus on their needs and provide them the help and support they must have to build successful lives.
These women need YOU.
