UWRA WELCOMES ADRIANNA CUELLAR ROJAS TO THE BOARD
Join us in welcoming our newest UWRA Board Member Adrianna Cuellar Rojas, President and CEO of United Ways of Texas (UWT). Adrianna’s perspective and experience are a valuable addition to UWRA’s Board as we embrace the opportunities ahead.
UWRA: Tell us about yourself.
Adrianna: My focus has always been on serving communities, especially our state’s most vulnerable populations. I consider myself to be optimistic, a collaborator, and a systems thinker. I joined United Ways of Texas (UWT) in 2014 as President & CEO. Before that, I spent 17 years advising community investments for one of Texas’ largest family foundations. I have also worked for several state agencies and the Texas Senate, where I focused on systems change and policies supporting children and families.
UWRA: How did you come to know UWRA, and how have you been involved?
Adrianna: UWT has been a long-time member of UWRA. On occasion, we have utilized UWRA’s network of consultants to support Texas member organizations through one-on one mentoring and by filling interim leadership positions. UWT values the mentorship, education, and guidance that UWRA brings to our members.
UWRA: What are you looking forward to most about serving on the UWRA Board?
Adrianna: It is incredibly rewarding to be part of the organized network of United Ways – something that I had not previously experienced in philanthropy or public service. We have such terrific leaders interested in growing and supporting each other while also focusing on community change. I am excited to learn more about UWRA’s opportunities to contribute to the overall United Way network.
