New Women New Yorkers is led by Arielle Kandel, founder and Chief Executive Officer, its Board of Directors, and Executive Team.

Key programs and activities of the organization are facilitated by volunteers, who are an integral part of New Women New Yorkers’ cross-community vision and of its career mentoring and transformational leadership model. The majority are women, and many are immigrants themselves; they come from a variety of cultural and professional backgrounds. As of Fall 2017, New Women New Yorkers has a team of over 30 regular volunteers.

One of our recent initiatives, the Community Ambassadors Group, provides graduates of our LEAD program with the opportunity to volunteer and contribute to the development of NWNY’s programs.
