2018 Jean K. Schuyler Award Honoree:

Leslie Bhutani


In the wake of the Thomas Fire and the mudslides in Montecito, individuals and families in communities served by Planned Parenthood California Central Coast experienced devastating loss. Many affected are our supporters and patients.

To you, our supporters, we look forward to coming together as a Planned Parenthood family to embrace one another, continue healing, and share an uplifting evening. And, to our patients and those who might need us over the weeks and months ahead, we will be here to continue providing compassionate care–no matter what.

Honoring

Leslie Bhutani

Leslie grew up in Kansas and went to the University of Kansas where she studied business. She spent the following ten years in the finance industry, ending up in New York City, where she met her husband Ashish. After they had children, she chose to work on issues that resonated with her. Planned Parenthood was a natural fit, having been a patient herself as a teen. She joined the Planned Parenthood Southern New England board in 1996 and worked for many years on their benefit committee. She has been a member of the Planned Parenthood Federation’s national Leadership Council for 11 years. She also served on the Planned Parenthood California Central Coast Board for 6 years ending in 2017. During that time she was Chair of the Development Committee and helped transition our Planned Parenthood Annual Dinner into our fabulous Birds and Bees Bash! There is no question that Planned Parenthood is her number one passion! Aside from that she works with gun violence prevention efforts and the Humane Society, and political activism around these and other progressive causes. She is a happy parent of two lovely 20 somethings, and a grateful daughter to Pat and Derrell Sweem. She couldn’t have pursued her non-profit goals without the incredible support of her husband, Ashish, with whom she is serving a life sentence.
