Women United

We are Women United.

As an integral part of United Way for Greater Austin, Women United is a network committed to creating a powerful, female-driven philanthropic force to improve early childhood education in Greater Austin. We are a diverse, vibrant community bound together by a powerful sense of belonging — to each other and to our community.

Our Shared Vision

Ninety percent of a child’s brain develops before age six. By working hand-in-hand with education organizations and community stakeholders, UWATX connects children from low-income families to high-quality education before they even enter kindergarten.

We are part of a growing, global network of women leaders – 70,000 strong across more than 165 communities in six countries. Our vision is to create a thriving community for all. In Austin, Women United supports United Way’s early childhood education initiatives, known collectively as Success By 6, to ensure all children have a strong foundation for learning and life.
