Founded in 2016 and HQ in New York City, UMA is a platform which empowers women who have taken a career break to re-enter the workforce, providing them with career-building skills via networking events as well as career and wellness workshops, with the end goal of being placing women within a range of curated jobs.
“Too many smart, talented women who left the workforce to raise children are unable to find jobs that match their credentials and lifestyle commitments when they try to return. Not enough is being done to retain, retrain or re-engage this fundamental talent pool. Companies that once hired and trained these incredible women now suffer from an intense loss of headcount and huge drain of hiring and training resources, too.
At Uma, we challenge the status quo, we break with the mold, we work with like-minded employers to create opportunities that match the credentials and lifestyle goals of these powerful women.
In Sanskrit, the Hindu Goddess Uma is a daughter, a mother, a sibling and a wife. She represents strength, courage and confidence. She is the Goddess of Go-Getting!
At Uma, we empower women to re-enter the workforce through networking events, workshops and Umaship placements. Headquartered in New York, with offices in London and the San Francisco Bay Area.”
Be Bold. Be You. Be Uma.
