For the second year in a row, Unified is celebrating the men and women who are actively striving toward gender equality. The truth is, when women are supported at work, there are benefits for everyone—including wages. On this special night, we will honor the influencers, mentors, and role models that have consistently inspired and/or supported our mission of empowering women. Hosted at the gorgeous Midtown Terrace in NYC, The LEAD Awards will feature an award ceremony, a lively panel discussion, networking, music, hors d'oeuvres and champagne—all in the name of our theme this year: Owning It.
