United for Equity Community Partner Convening

Hosted by United Way Bay Area

We are connecting with and learning from United Way Bay Area’s community partners with regional Partner Convenings all year long!


FOSTER CITY – William E. Walker Recreation Center

About this event
United Way Bay Area is celebrating a Century of Impact, United for Equity as we mark our centennial this year! Throughout the years we have built many partnerships and would not be where we are today without partners like you.
We would like to invite you to UWBA’s First Centennial Community Partner Convening on September 29th, 2022 at the William E. Walker Recreation Center from 12pm – 3:30pm.
Date & Time: September 29th, 2022, 12pm – 3:30pm
William E. Walker Recreation Center 650 Shell Blvd Foster City, CA 94404

Attendees will be able to connect, share solutions, learn, and be inspired. Our convening will feature discussions around direct cash assistance and hear directly from community members. Specifically, we will discuss the idea of universal basic income and why guaranteed income programs can make a difference.
