The UnityWorks Foundation was established in 2013 by members of the Gottlieb family who saw a critical need for training and easy-to-use educational materials designed to teach people about the oneness of humanity, the value of diversity and the need for unity.
We are committed to building an inclusive organization that will serve as a model of unity in diversity. We plan to add additional board members and staff from diverse backgrounds in the future, in order to strengthen the Foundation’s ability to achieve its mission.
