Peggy Smyth recognized for making a difference

By Karen Young

Peggy Smyth, U.S. CFO is being recognized by the United Way of NYC Women’s Leadership Council for positively impacting our local communities and making a difference in the lives of others. She was selected for her leadership and personal success as a National Grid executive.

Peggy is a role model for professional women. She’s dedicated to empowering women as an Etsy’s board member and committed to providing educational opportunities for young people through her alma mater Fordham University.

“It is imperative that we give the next generation the opportunities they deserve.  I’m proud that National Grid is committed to empowering others to live their full potential.  Working with the United Way we can support the education initiatives to empower the women and future leaders of our local communities.”

Peggy and two other extraordinary business leaders were honored during the UWNYC’s 2018 Power of Women to Make a Difference  luncheon. She was joined by her family and National Grid colleagues.

The luncheon supports UWNYC’s signature program, ReadNYC, an initiative that Peggy is particularly passionate about. Now in its fifth year, the program helps low-income students achieve grade-level reading, while empowering their families to reach self-sufficiency.
