“The Women’s Forum is a leadership organization of New York’s preeminent female leaders in every professional sector, from finance to fine arts. Appreciating that education is the key to success in every industry, we pride ourselves in helping high potential women over the age of 35 return to college after their education has been disrupted by life’s adversities. Giving these women a second chance to realize their potential is our way of giving back and building new leaders.”

- Ami Kaplan, President of the Women’s Forum of New York.

 

 “Twenty-eight years ago, the Education Fund embarked on a mission to help women, who had overcome serious hardships in their lives, to realize their dream of an education.  We started out slowly, but have been able to achieve real momentum in helping these women through the Elly Awards.  Education Fund grants have made a significant impact on the lives of the women who receive them, on their families, and on their communities as grant recipients earn a degree and take their place in the work world.”

THE EDUCATION FUND VIDEO

Underwriting for The Education Fund Video was generously supplied by The Sy Syms Foundation.

The Women’s Forum of New York:

The Women’s Forum of New York is New York's premier organization of women leaders comprised of the highest women achievers across all professional sectors from finance to fine arts.

They advance women's leadership three ways:

     through core programming which provides personal and professional enrichment to their members

     through the Education Fund which provides education awards to high potential women whose careers have been derailed by adversity

     through the Corporate Board Initiative which expands and extends the contribution of women leaders through participation on corporate and civic boards.

 

The Education Fund is an educational and charitable arm of The Women’s Forum of New York, established under a separate corporate governance as a 501(c)3 tax deductible organization.

 

Since 1987, the Fund has helped mature women pursue educational goals and enhance their capacities to provide productive and supportive service to their communities. The Award recognizes extraordinary and often heroic effort in overcoming adversity and the most daunting of odds in restructuring lives for success.


Grants are awarded to women over the age of 35 who, after suffering great adversity and an interruption in their education, are now pursuing undergraduate college degrees. Students in this population are often single parents, economically disadvantaged and struggling with the rising costs of a college education. Over the past 28 years, 172 women have been honored by The Education Fund.

About The 2015 Elly Honorees:

 

Tina Brown is an award-winning journalist, editor, author, and currently founder and CEO of Tina Brown Live Media and Women in the World, a company dedicated to summits, salons, flash forums and debates which offer solutions to building a better life for women and girls.  Prior to this, in October 2008, Tina launched and edited the award-winning digital news site The Daily Beast with Barry Diller’s IAC. Between 1979 and 2001, she was editor-in-chief of Tatler, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and Talk—and later Newsweek in 2011. She also authored the 2007 best-selling biography of the Princess of Wales, The Diana Chronicles. In 2000, Queen Elizabeth awarded Tina the honor of Commander of the Order of the British Empire for her services to journalism.

 

Emily Rafferty, President Emerita, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, recently stepped down as President after 39 years on the staff of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive art museum.  Emily has served on the Federal Reserve Bank of New York since 2011, its chairman since 2012 and was elected Chair of the National Board of Chairs in 2015. She serves as Chairwoman of NYC & Company, the City’s official tourism and marketing agency, and is a member of the Board of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. Her devotion to varied cultural, economic and philanthropic organizations and the collegial relationships she has fostered among them both here and abroad, illustrate why Emily is frequently named one of New York’s most influential women.

About The Presenters:

Mika Brzezinski is the co-host of MSNBC’s "Morning Joe" and the author of three best-selling books.  Her second book Knowing Your Value, which examines the role of women in the workplace, reached #1 on The New York Times best-sellers list for business books in the spring of 2011.  Her most recent book Obsessed: America’s Food Addiction and My Own debuted on the best-sellers list in the spring of 2013.  Prior to joining MSNBC in 2007, Mika was an anchor of the “CBS Evening News Weekend Edition,” a CBS News correspondent, a frequent contributor to “CBS Sunday Morning” and “60 Minutes,” and an on-site reporter from Lower Manhattan on 9/11.

Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, her PBS specials from the Metropolitan Museum and Ireland, her inspirational books and her motivating work with UNICEF. A Renaissance woman, Judy continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart. 

About The Moderator:

Deborah Norville, Anchor of "Inside Edition," the country’s top-rated syndicated newsmagazine, is a two-time Emmy© winner, who joined "Inside Edition" in 1995 from CBS News where she was anchor and correspondent. Former co-host of NBC’s “Today” and anchor of NBC "News at Sunrise," Deborah hosted the primetime “Deborah Norville Tonight” on MSNBC and her own show on the ABC Talk Radio Network.  She is author of The New York Times best-selling book, Thank You Power: Making the SCIENCE of Gratitude Work for YOU, and the creative force behind the Deborah Norville Yarn Collection, as well as a corporate and non-profit board director.
