The UnityWorks Foundation was established in 2013 by members of the Gottlieb-Shevin family who saw a critical need for training and educational resources designed to promote understanding of the oneness of humanity, the value of diversity and the need for unity. We are pleased to be joined by additional board members who value these same goals. Together, we are committed
to building an inclusive organization that will serve as a model of unity in diversity.
