Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright, Democrat Representative from the Upper East Side, hosted her Third Annual Women’s Leadership Awards, honoring eight women whose activism and contributions to society have put women, and all New Yorkers, on a better path to get ahead, including philanthropist Jean Shafiroff who donated a copy of her book, Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life by What You Give to all the attendees.

“I am so proud of the hard work and dedication of my fellow honorees,” Jean Shafiroff said. “Your leadership and generosity has truly made a difference in the lives you’ve touched. You demonstrate genuine leadership and philanthropy by turning your passion into action and give time, contributions, knowledge, and resources to the causes you care deeply about. I hope these awards challenge others to follow your lead and commit to true philanthropy to help us make the world a better place.”

The Annual Women’s Leadership Awards was created in 2016 by Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright as a way to honor women who are role models in our community with their leadership, determination and resolve.
