United, We Can

Building a strong community where all people can thrive depends on your generous support.


January 8, 2021

Moira Weir, president and CEO of United Way of Greater Cincinnati (UWGC), is one of 41 finalists for the Business Courier’s 2020 C-Suite Awards, a program that honors top executives for outstanding leadership and measurable success at Greater Cincinnati businesses and nonprofits.

A panel of outside judges selected the finalists in five categories. Moira, the first female leader of UWGC, is a finalist in the Chief Executive Officer category. 

Moira began her work at UWGC in mid-March 2020 — a week earlier than planned — to ensure that the organization was at the forefront of efforts to provide relief in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. She quickly assembled a new leadership team, and she has overseen a number of initiatives designed to help the region respond and recover. Among them: a partnership with the Greater Cincinnati Foundation to establish the COVID-19 Regional Response Fund, which raised $7.2 million for nonprofit organizations that serve people who are vulnerable.

This is the sixth year for the C-Suite Awards. Winners will be announced Dec. 4 in a special section of the Business Courier’s print edition. No ceremony will be held because of the pandemic.
