Umu Igbo Unite (UIU), was founded in 2005 in Atlanta, Georgia by the
D.I. Anadu and J.C. Okpukpara families.The motivation behind UIU’s birth
was to address the lack of a structured network that catered to the
specific cultural, professional, and social needs ofa first-generation
Igbo Americans and the greater Diaspora. Since its inception, UIU has
grown to over 5,000 members nationwide with 16 active chapters: Atlanta,
Dallas, Houston, DMV, Boston, Tristate (NY, NJ, CT), Chicago, Detroit,
Los Angeles, Cincinnati, Twin Cities, Bay Area, Austin, Miami, Seattle
We celebrate individuality, embrace differences and enable learning
opportunities by creating safe harbors in which people can come
together for mutual understanding and benefit.
We seek to actively engage members in professional growth
through activities such as conferences, seminars, workshops,
