Women United

Behind every great woman are the women who have her back.

Women United is a diverse, vibrant community of visionaries and change makers bound together by a powerful sense of belonging — to one another, to our community and to our mission of transforming the lives of women living in Oxford County.

Together, we leverage our time, talents and funds to empower women in our community to build strong, independent lives. United we are stronger. Together we can create a world full of opportunity for all women.

We are excited to announce this year’s Women United Co-Chairs are Leslie Farrell, (Tim Hortons Norwich Ave.) and Cassandra Benard, (OC Realty Team with Revel Woodstock).

“In the past 6 years while being a member of the Board of Directors for United Way Oxford, I have become very committed to the work and impact of United Way in our community. With my time on the Board coming to an end, joining Women United allows me to still be a productive, connected and valuable part of United Way.  In my time on the Board, I have a gained a greater knowledge of the needs in our community and see how the work of United Way has deep, lasting impact in our community, truly changing people’s lives. It’s something that I am proud to be a part of.” – Leslie Farrell

“Being a part of Women United has provided me with an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the issues facing our community, and the role I can play to create meaningful change. It has been incredibly rewarding to collaborate with like-minded volunteers and then work together to uplift women in our community and see firsthand the impact of United Way’s work. United Way’s adaptability to meaningfully support different initiatives and needs in our community is their greatest asset, and I am proud to volunteer my resources to such a worthy organization.” – Cassandra Benard
