United Way is REBUILDING for better, more equitable and more resilient communities.
We don’t want to get “back to normal.” Normal wasn’t working for millions of people, and old and broken systems won’t fix those challenges.
We need to reimagine a new normal that results in more equitable and resilient communities. We need also to reimagine collaboration between the private, public and non-profit sectors, to effectively drive real change in communities that equips them to better weather inevitable future crises.
Rebuilding the Future Series provides dynamic opportunities for Women United members and their guests that includes insider information on our Community Impact initiatives and investment strategies. Each event includes a panel discussion and volunteer opportunity.
