March 4, 2014, Union County NJ ~ United Way of Greater Union County is celebrating Women’s History Month by launching its Girls Today, Leaders Tomorrow mentoring initiative. Alison Yablonowitz, partner at Ernst & Young’s Assurance Services Department and Chair of the Women’s Leadership Council, will be joined by Janice Kovach, Mayor of Clinton, and other distinguished guests at United Way’s 1st Annual Girls Today, Leaders Tomorrow breakfast to be held March 21, 2014, 8 AM to 10:30 AM at the Galloping Hills Golf Clubhouse, Kenilworth, NJ.
 
The Girls Today, Leaders Tomorrow Initiative (GTLT) is a mentoring program designed to provide opportunities to empower adolescent girls and give them the tools they need to succeed in today’s world. The girls participate in structured workshops that increase self-esteem, self-empowerment and positive life style decisions. 
 
As advocates for these young women, United Way is committed to helping young girls succeed in their various communities using a collaborative model that includes a mentorship component. UWGUC enlists the assistance of career-minded women to take on a mentoring role to help these young women develop critical leadership skills that will benefit them in their educational and career pathways. 
 
Several women, representing various levels of leadership, will join the panel of experts to discuss how to succeed in the workplace.  Esteemed panelists include Lisa Utasi, Senior Trader at Clear Bridge Investments, who has over 27 years of industry experience and was past chairman of the Security Traders Association and Christina Schelling, Vice President, HR Transformation & Change, American Express, will speak about her journey within one of the nation’s top credit card companies.
 
As chair, Alison Yablonowitz’s primary role is to cultivate and nurture philanthropy and volunteerism among women in Union County that support UWGUC programs serving girls in need. Alison will lead this group of professional women who will volunteer their time and provide contributions to meet the needs of the initiative, which will also result in them mentoring young girls from Union County, North and South Plainfield.
