Austen's commitment to philanthropy made her an obvious choice to receive the Women's Initiative Award during this special milestone year, said Jill Michal, president & CEO of UWGPSNJ.  

"For many years, Mary has provided unwavering support for United Way and our mission to improve education, income and health throughout the region," Michal said. "But as a mother of five children who just happens to be the head of a major communications firm, Mary embodies what it means to be a woman in leadership. She is a wonderful role model for any woman who strives to succeed in her personal and professional endeavors."

Austen has been a longtime supporter of United Way, serving most recently as a member of the organization's regional board of directors and as chair of the 2011 United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania Campaign, which raised $48.5 million.  Her commitment to strengthening the vitality of the region extends beyond her work at United Way, including service on the boards of Alex's Lemonade Stand, Main Line Health, Girl Scouts of Southeastern Pennsylvania, the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce and Lafayette College. Her work has been celebrated throughout the business and nonprofit communities, with recognitions including the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce Paradigm Award, the region's most prestigious award for businesswomen; the Spirit of Life award, the City of Hope's most prestigious honor presented to community leaders; and accolades from the Pennsylvania League of Women Voters, the American Heart Association, and the Salvation Army.

"It is an honor to receive the 2013 Women's Initiative Award.  Since its inception 10 years ago, United Way's Women's Initiative has built an incredible network of women committed to philanthropy and volunteerism," Austen said. "In turn, through programs like Girls Today, Leaders Tomorrow, these leaders have helped hundreds of at-risk girls develop core values that support their future success.  I could not be more proud to support that effort, and I look forward to the next 10 years of success for the Women's Initiative."
