Women United was formed to inspire, educate, and engage women to become actively involved in leadership, philanthropy, volunteerism, and advocacy in support of their local United Way. Women United is a group of community-minded women who provide the support it takes to build successful lives through United Way’s building blocks of Health, Education, Income, and Basic Needs.
In 2019, we plan to rally around Northwoods Battered Women’s Shelter’s need for a new facility. Our second quarterly meeting will be held on April 25, 2019 at Bemidji State University’s Beaux Arts Ballroom from 8:30am-10am. During the breakfast meeting, NBWS will take us through an "In her Shoes" training, BSU Assistant Professor, Dr. Rebecca Hoffman will be sharing her research from the NBWS, and we will be hearing updates from the various interest group committees.
Even though member breakfasts are covered with your membership, we do ask that you invite friends to join you as all proceeds from the breakfast will go to Northwoods Battered Women’s Shelter’s capital campaign. The cost is $20 for a non-member to attend. Also, if you know of someone that would be interested in joining our cause as a Women United member, please share this information with them.
2019 Quarterly Meeting Dates:
BSU Beaux Arts Ballroom from 8:30am-10am
February 28, 2019
April 25, 2019
July 18, 2019

We look forward to using your strengths, resources, and care for our community to help Northwoods Battered Women’s Shelter build capacity and serve more families in the Bemidji community. Together we can do more than any one of us can do alone!
