Who we are

The meaning goes beyond the acronym.
In Italy, the gender gap is very far from being bridged.

The network we are creating aims to help many women in the world, but, as always, it is critical to start locally, from what you know better, from what you feel you can impact in fruitful ways and promptly.

That is why this name celebrates our origins too.  In Italian, “una” is a definite feminine article. The “A” is the ending that distinguishes women from men;
a small, single letter can influence government positions, your role in companies, and society.

UNA Women celebrates a woman who dares to follow herself to empower her life. A woman who wants to help others realise themselves through their potential.

UNA Women is you, UNA Women is all of us, when we struggle together, to design the world, we would like to live in.

How it started

We always lived and felt like European citizens. Our common vision initially was to stimulate innovation in the many communities around the world who dream big. Over the past seven years we have inspired several European communities with our cloud solutions.

Our strong experience in the development of cloud services and mobile apps allowed us to earn prestigious international collaborations, thanks to the creation of platforms such as Papaya, used by students from over one hundred universities in Europe and supported from the Erasmus Student Network.


We responded to the Europen challenge launched with the EU Datathon 2021 of supporting "An economy that works for people", translating the social challenges of the post-pandemic period into solutions. The main goal was to contribute to the recovery of female mobility, bringing the value of open data to all those young users who wish to take a step towards the Europe of the future, taking advantage of a new way to access a plurality of information through a single portal.

The first version of our app, Wonder Wanderlust Women, won a double first prize at the global event “EU Open Data Days 2021”, beating a competition of over 96 submissions from 33 countries. We were awarded precisely on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of violence against women, November 25th, at the international event (live from Luxembourg).

This experience helped shape and inspire us, but we quickly realized that we wanted more:

we want to see change in our lifetime. That's why, after new studies, research, partnerships and a total rebranding of our solution, we have come to UNA Women!
