Women United®

As an integral part of United Way of Alamance County, Women United® fights for the health, education, and income 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 community we call home.

WE IGNITE CHANGE

In Alamance County, we tackle the issues that matter most to those of us that call it home. We empower each other to leverage our passions, ideas, expertise, and resources to transform the very conditions in which we live. With more than $1.5B 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.

WHAT HAVE WE DONE?

Here in Alamance County over the past couple of years, we have taken on the bold goal of advocating for education and how to address the root causes of problems within this area.  We chose to support the Leader in Me® program, which is based on Stephen Covey’s widely successful The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  Leader in Me® is a whole-school transformation model and process developed in partnership with educators that empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.  Instead of focusing on academic measures alone, Leader in Me® embodies a holistic approach to education, redefining how schools measure success.
