USOW Ambassadors

Please note that Ambassador applications are closed at this time. We look forward to announcing our next cohort and will reopen applications this fall



USOW launched the Ambassador program in 2018 as an opportunity to work one-on-one with women across the country. After almost two years, our mission moving forward is clear: through our Ambassador program, the United State of Women can build a community of women across the country leading the fight for gender equity.

In service of that mission, the USOW Ambassador Program is an opportunity for current and future leaders passionate about improving gender equity, no matter their background or previous experience. Our team ensures that Ambassadors have the tools, resources, connections, and support they need to tell the story of women’s power and make a measurable change in their communities.

Currently, there are 90 USOW Ambassadors working in 44 states and territories across the country to bring together those in their community interested in achieving a more united #StateofWomen. Find your local Ambassador below!


Ambassadors represent cities and states across the U.S. and work with USOW staff to bring those in their community interested in achieving a more united movement for gender equity.

This will be through a combination of the following actions:


Grow a network of local supporters interested in taking action, focusing on outreach to individuals who haven’t previously done so or are looking to get more involved. Collaborate with local nonprofits and other organizations on events or actions. These actions may include mobilizing public support, meeting with local officials, planning a rally, etc. Each Ambassador’s actions may be different and not all will fit into a single issue. 


Bring stakeholders, such as government officials, business leaders, local non-profits, activists, and community members, working on gender equity across issue areas in your community together, ensuring that best practices are being shared, efforts are coordinated, and collaboration is happening through regular roundtables, continued engagement, and the eventual creation of a statewide network. 


Identify individuals doing innovative, groundbreaking, and critical work in their community that should be highlighted on USOW’s media channels and amongst their community of USOW supporters. This includes USOW’s broader reach through USOW’s Forbes BrandVoice Channel. Ambassadors actively share and interact with USOW media platforms and content to amplify the messages of our partner organizations. 


Throughout their time with USOW, Ambassadors work with a wide range of organizations and individuals in their community. Here are some of the ways they’ve been able to kickstart or strengthen their local movements for full gender equity:
