About the Helena Devereux Women in Leadership Award

In the early 1900s, a young school teacher left Philadelphia and moved to a town on the city’s “Main Line” to launch one of the nation’s first private schools for children with special needs.

As an entrepreneur, she fought through many barriers of her time, thus helping to lead the way for future generations of professional women. Through personal sacrifice, innovation and unrelenting resolve, her small business grew – and, today, is one of the largest non-profit providers of behavioral healthcare in the nation.

The providers for this prestigious award will be senior level executives. Nominees are women who have achieved exemplary professional and personal accomplishments and have significantly, ethically and memorably impacted the area better known as the Greater Main Line.
