“UWB seeks to be an advocate for professional women, offering resources for business development, marketing and PR, while also acting as an open community that fosters entrepreneurial creativity and ingenuity.
UWB prides itself on being an organization that supports and promotes social entrepreneurship and philanthropic endeavors. It is in this spirit of social justice that UWB is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the many desolate orphanages in Ukraine which house and educate children in need. Additionally, we also act as a much needed resource for families looking to adopt from Ukraine–a process which can be quite daunting.” (Ukrainian Women in Businees – Objectives)
