we are women united

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 community, bound together by a powerful sense of belonging — to each other, to the organization’s mission, and to the communities we call home. Our powerful, global network of women leaders, over 70,000 strong, lives united against the most critical issues facing more than 165 communities in six countries.

Nominations for this year’s Women Who Mean Business Awards are now open. Do you know someone who excels in entrepreneurship, professionalism, civic involvement, or community leadership? Nominate them today!

Started in 1999, the Women Who Mean Business Awards have been presented to individuals who are active in their professions, including business, law, medicine, education, hospitality, retail, media, insurance, banking, non-profits, public service, oil and gas, and more. In 2004, The Trailblazer Award was created to acknowledge retired or semi-retired women who paved the way for future generations.  Nominations will close on August 22 at midnight.

 

 

We Ignite Change

In each community we serve, Women United tackles the issues that matter most to the people who call it home. We empower each other to use our passions, our ideas, our expertise and resources to transform the very conditions in which people live. With more than $1.5 billion invested in local solutions and a worldwide footprint, we’re able to positively impact our hometown while also being part of the bigger picture and broader cause.
