United Way women’s forum focuses on social issues

Social issues like public health and access to education can only be addressed if members of diverse sectors of the community come together, speakers at a forum of women business and community leaders said Wednesday. That was the central message of United Way of Central Maryland’s first Women’s Leadership Council Forum, which focused on ways to make progress in such areas as financial stability and homelessness. The event in Baltimore brought together about 400 attendees on the 15th anniversary of the Women’s Leadership Council’s local chapter, made up of a group of women philanthropists and advocates.
