City Year Philadelphia’s Women's Leadership Luncheon, will be held on Wednesday, March 8, 2017 at the Union League of Philadelphia.
The Women’s Leadership Luncheon is a way to empower local female leaders by getting connected to each other and the communities we live and work. This year’s event will use the restaurant sector as an example of how female leaders can create a sense of community, foster change and breakthrough in a previously male-dominated industry. The event will spotlight local female entrepreneurs, business owners and change makers in the food service industry.
