Featured Event

Women United Happy Hour

Drinks & Dialogue

Thursday May 9th 2024 • 5:00 PM
Rio Bravo Brewing Company, 1912 2nd Street Northwest, ABQ, NM

Join us for an inspiring evening to connect with other like-minded leaders in our community. At our Drinks and Dialogue series, we host conversations on current issues that impact women in our community. At our upcoming gathering on May 9, we’ll focus on the recent national investments in research on women’s health. Let’s talk about the implications of its historical neglect and the progress we’re starting to see!

About Us

  • Learn about and connect with organizations supporting women in our community
  • Receive invitations to all Women United events

Women United Fund

The purpose of UWNCNM’s Women United Fund is to help create sustainable systemic change in our five-county community through grants that address a continuum of services and the most pressing issues for women. These grants are awarded to agencies that empower women to become self-sufficient through focus areas including but not limited to: 

Improving high school graduation rates and/or assisting with GED completion

Providing job/skill training and/or retraining for women to secure gainful employment 

Supporting transitional and/or permanent housing for women


Women United Members are people who wish to affect change in their community by giving any amount to the United Way of North Central New Mexico Women United Fund.  Members are asked to volunteer their time to improve the lives of women in our community.
