Recently, UWLE was asked to participate in the International Leadership Program, Women Leaders: Promoting Peace and Security. Several board members sat down to visit with a group of women from the Philippines ranging in leadership roles, such as Chief Executive Officer, Education and Administration, and Mayor. UWLE learned about the process of how individuals become officers, jail conditions in the Philippines, and special programs to assist women and children that may have been abused, attacked, or homeless. The UWLE board members described the leadership structure of law enforcement, as well as, the difference between a Sheriff and Mayor and their impact on the communities and their officers. UWLE also explained various state laws, juvenile and adults. UWLE board members were enlightened and honored to have the experience to talk with this amazing group of women and wish them the best of luck in their careers.

COMMANDER CELESTE GLEAVE
FOUNDER, PRESIDENT & CEO, SHEROES UNITED
When the suicide and homeless rates of women veterans skyrocketed, Celeste Gleave knew she had to do something to help heal and change existing systems for women warriors and victims of violence. She used her considerable business and government clout to build something extraordinary through SHEROES United. Forbes Magazine requested to profile her in an upcoming Issue "Most Powerful Women" in the U.S., and Celeste asked Forbes instead to honor her board for their contributions and tireless efforts in the crises women are facing in the world.
Celeste has won countless awards, the most recent being “Global Leader Award” by Arts for Peace. Women’s Leadership Live named Celeste “An Outstanding Leader for Vision, Dedication and Commitment to Excellence.” She was selected by the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon and MAJCOM Warner Robins to serve as a Civic Leader to the USAFR and the civilian community, working directly aside the Joint Chiefs in Honorary Three-Star Status. She was the Chairwoman for "Go Red for Women" with the AHA. She is one of few featured leaders in the current Social Studies and History Book "Utah Journey" for Utah Schools as a pioneer for Industry in Utah alongside impressive leaders & innovators.
Celeste is both an International and community leader. She has been asked to bring a Global Women’s Summit to Europe to address issues of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking, as well as to groom leaders for NextGen. She was selected as the success story at the National SBA Conference and her business was seen at the NASDAQ closing bell. She has also served on several White House committees for small business. She has worked with GOED and other state groups. She currently sits on numerous boards. The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) named Celeste the Woman Business Owner of The Year. Later this year, she will announce a special award that she will be honored with by the White House where her portrait will hang indefinitely. Celeste leads with her heart and she is affectionately known as “the Commander” amongst her tribe of global leaders. She is committed to advancing women in all walks of life.
