How We Got Started

In 2009, five influential ladies came together as they felt that there was a need to bridge the gap between organization-based, campaign activities and provide an opportunity for women in the area that wanted to make a difference. That was the catalyst for the Jackson-based chapter of the Women’s Leadership Council.

In 2017, we made the decision to transition to WOMEN UNITED. With support from United Way Worldwide and our leadership at UWJC, we believe now is the perfect time to rebrand and revamp. We seek to recruit and retain members uninspired by the corporate, process-oriented notion of “Councils”. We will still continue our mission to see women and children succeed and look forward to the new opportunities identifying as Women United will bring our group.
