The 2012 (Em)Power Breakfast - Better than Ever!

YWLN celebrated our 2012 (Em)Power Breakfast on September 21, 2012 at the Pierre Hotel in New York City where over 580 people gathered to support our students and to salute our esteemed honorees.  We were proud to honor the following people for their achievements, leadership and big hearts:

The Newsweek/Daily Beast Company

Susan Lyne

Ann Shoket

The event was led by the young women who attend or have graduated from The Young Women's Leadership Schools and paid tribute to the parents who partner with YWLN to help their daughters realize their higher educational dreams.  More than $1.1 million was raised to support our network of five all-girls' public schools through New York City.  Thank you to everyone who made this event possible.  To view a list of our generous donors click here, to view our film "Letters to Our Daughters" click here
