Photos from the 2018 Boston WLN Event

On Thursday, March 15 the PLUS Foundation’s Women’s Leadership Network hosted Moving Women into Positions of Leadership and How to Bring Men into the Conversation at the Boston College Club in downtown Boston.

The event featured executives from Boston’s business community discussing the challenges facing women as they climb the corporate ladder, sharing first-hand experiences as to how individuals and companies can overcome a preference for the status quo, and offering expert advice regarding how to engage men in the conversation and foster gender partnership.

Donations to The Pink Giraffe House from PLUS Texas Chapter

About the Charity:

The Pink Giraffe House ( ) is a safe haven for young victims of abuse, neglect or abandonment who need protection from immediate danger at home. Services include mentor support, street outreach, drop-in center, case management and traditional housing.

From PLUS Member Nick Economidis:

“Gaetane Pauwels, the executive director of the Pink Giraffe House was thrilled, and the timing was very good.  With the cold weather and ice storms that Houston was experiencing, they were getting a larger than normal inflow of kids looking to get out of the cold.  They were in definite need of supplies!

Check out this video tour of the facility, and thanks to everyone who participated to support this terrific cause.
