Women in Leadership Luncheon Returns May 12

YWCA’s Biennial Women in Leadership Luncheon will be held May 12, 2022, at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville.

There are so many women in our community who serve as leaders in their families, workplaces, schools, and towns. The Women in Leadership Luncheon celebrates and honors these women and female students in central Connecticut. Over 650 women have been celebrated for their outstanding accomplishments and contributions since 1985, and hundreds of their supporters attend each luncheon to show their appreciation for these phenomenal women.

In addition to celebrating our honorees, the event program will feature a remarkable guest speaker. This year’s keynote speaker is Amita Mehta. Ms. Mehta is a passionate and dynamic business strategist with more than 25 years of experience at premier brands, including Fulton Bank, JPMorgan Chase, and Prudential Financial. Thriving as a trailblazer in a male-dominated field of financial services, Amita left corporate America to launch her own business and become a career transition architect and an LGBTQ+ advocate. As CEO of her own brand—Amita Mehta Possible (AMP)—she leverages her business acumen and unique perspective as a refugee, an inspired woman, and outspoken lesbian to empower her clients to discover their passions and become authentic leaders.

The Women in Leadership Luncheon also serves as a fundraiser for YWCA New Britain.  Proceeds from this event support important YWCA programs such as childcare, family literacy, youth development for middle school and high school girls, health and wellness programs, and sexual assault crisis services.
