Women's Leadership Council

Women's Leadership Council

United Way's Women's Leadership Council (WLC) in Westmoreland and Fayette Counties is a powerful network of nearly 100 women who are dedicated to developing women's leadership through philanthropy and engagement.

Our members support Faith in Action, a program that provides volunteer support for older adults in our community.

Members also:

  • Underwrite and mentor the annual YWCA Rising Star award/ee (given to a young woman under 35 who has shown early professional success and community involvement)
  • Attend local WLC meetings and social events
  • Volunteer time, professional expertise and talents to WLC causes
  • Receive exclusive updates on projects and programs
  • Engage in making a better life for all in our community
