Who We Are

As an integral part of United Way, Women United® fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community. We are a diverse, vibrant, and international community, bound together by a powerful sense of belonging — to each other, to the organization’s mission, and to the local communities we call home. Our powerful, global network of women leaders, over 70,000 strong nationwide, lives united against the most critical issues.

By joining Women United, you’ll become part of a community of like-minded women who contribute their personal passions, inspired ideas, and unique strengths to the mission of building stronger communities. You’ll make a difference through volunteer opportunities within the community alongside others who share your passion. As part of the organization, you’ll have opportunities to network and collaborate with key business and community leaders. This is your chance to learn about the key issues impacting our community, advocate, volunteer, give and make a difference.
