We welcome you to celebrate the New England Women’s Leadership Awards’ 30th Anniversary with us, as we continue to recognize and honor remarkable women who meet the challenges they face with confidence, persistence and compassion. NEWLA was one of the first events of its kind in the Boston area, so far recognizing 137 outstanding women.

Our honorees are role models and mentors for our members – their stories inspire our young girls (and boys) to dream big, work hard and succeed. We hope you will join us this year for another evening that will touch hearts and change lives.
