Leadership Summit on October 26
Join our ALL IN movement to advance gender equity across our region at our virtual Leadership Summit on Tuesday, October 26!

With special virtual networking opportunities, 16 sessions, special insights from leaders in our community, and a powerful keynote address by Gwen Webber-McLeod, you can’t miss this unique event. 
So join your colleagues across industries and career levels to network, share best practices, and learn together.

It’s time to reconnect and make sure gender equity is part of our “new normal” at work. Because gender equity in the workplace is not inevitable. It requires everyone’s bold commitment to advance women in all industries, at every level, and across our community.
Help WNYWF Score with Stefon Diggs!
Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver Partners with WNY Women's Foundation
This autumn, when you purchase Stefon Diggs’ limited edition hot sauce and blue cheese at Wegmans, you're also supporting the WNY Women's Foundation. 

Stefon is donating a portion of all proceeds to the Foundation to ensure every woman has the opportunity to earn, learn, and lead. 

We're thrilled to partner with Stefon in this way. Remember to stock up ahead of Monday's game to support our Buffalo Bills AND gender equity!
Highmark BCBSWNY's Blue Fund Supports Women's Economic Mobility with Major Grant
The Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York Blue Fund recently awarded the WNY Women’s Foundation a major $100,000 grant in support of our women’s economic mobility work. 

Our economic mobility work supports single mothers across the region in completing their education (college or training) and attaining family-sustaining jobs, thus lifting multiple generations out of poverty.

This award is a wonderful testament to the strength of our work and the importance of working together to tackle big issues to advance women and move Western New York forward.
