UBS x Luminary Fellowship 2023 LP Banner

Helping 75 Women of Color Owned Businesses
BUILD, MANAGE, and GROW their companies. 

What We're ALL About

More than 5 million businesses are majority-owned by women of color in the U.S., employing over 2 million people and generating roughly $360 billion in revenues annually.

Yet, the odds are stacked against them, including everything from lack of capital and funding to biases and lack of representation.

The UBS x Luminary Fellowship Program was created in 2021 to support businesses owned or founded by women of color. We are pleased to offer the program again in 2023 for the third year in a row.

Fellows also receive best-in-class thought leadership and insights from UBS, with specific support from the UBS Business Owners, Multicultural Investors and Women's Strategic Client Segments, including access to the extensive resources of the UBS Business Owners and Own Your Worth platforms and accompanying Financial Participation educational content for women.
