2014 (Em)Power Breakfast

On October 15, 2014, more than 600 guests joined us in celebrating the more than 2,200 girls served by The Young Women’s Leadership Schools (TYWLS) in New York City this year.

The 2014 (Em)Power Breakfast honored our students and their achievements. We are grateful to this year’s honorees for representing the confidence and determination we cultivate in every TYWLS girl. The 2014 Breakfast honored:

  • Dina Powell, President of the Goldman Sachs Foundation, Global Head of the Office of Corporate Engagement, and Head of Goldman Sachs Bank USA's Urban Investment Group

  • And "The Man We Love:" Andrew Farkas - Chairman and CEO of Island Capital Group

They join a group of distinguished past honorees and supporters of YWLN’s (Em)Power Breakfast.
