Women's Initiative Mission -


The mission of the Women's Initiative is to organize an influential group of women who will strengthen our community through a focused investment of their time, talent and treasure to address an urgent community issue of particular concern to women and girls, and who will leave a legacy for future generations. 


What is the Women's Initiative and what is it hoping to do?


The Women's Initiative has been formed to identify areas of community need that are of particular concern to women and girls, and to raise human and financial resources to create public awareness and lasting change. By design they employ a hands on strategy identifying community issues, determining how to address them, raising necessary financial resources and deciding how much money to spend on them.


How does it work?


A Women's Initiative Leadership Council is formed to research and select a specific issue of concern to women and girls that they believe needs extra attention. The committee then researches the current situation and identifies a project or projects that can have significant community impact on the issue that they will support through funds raised or by their efforts.


How can I get involved?


We invite you to attend one of our monthly meetings held at United Way of Fresno County. You will have the chance to meet other women who are passionate about making a difference in our community for women and young girls. For more information, please contact May Gnia Her at or 559.243.3669.
