Women United is thrilled to invite the community to our 2014 Human Services Grants Award Luncheon, where we award two $22,500 grants to local
non-profits. For nearly a decade Women United has hosted this event and awarded significant grants to area non-profits that serve women and children.

This year we are pleased to announce our keynote speaker, a Charlottesville native, Anne-Marie Slaughter. Dr. Slaughter currently serves as president and CEO of the New America Foundation, a public policy institute and idea incubator based in Washington and New York. She holds distinction as the first woman director of Policy Planning for the United States Department of State. In 2012 she published an article which helped reignite a national debate regarding society’s continued gender inequality. This article, entitled “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” continues to be the most read article in the history of The Atlantic.

We anticipate that this event will sell out quickly, so please reserve your space early!
