Since 1987, our country has celebrated March as Women's History Month. United Way of Broward County pays tribute to the visionary women in our community, this month and all year long, who are making a difference in the lives of those who need it most. 

"The Women's Leadership Council is based on the belief that every issue is a woman's issue and on the incredibly powerful impact of women working together for a greater good. I'm proud to serve as Chair for United Way of Broward County's Women's Leadership Council, and to continually learn from and work alongside our community's most well-respected and generous female leaders." 
- Rosy Lopez, Women's Leadership Council Chair
