Introducing Dana Pavlychko, the new CEO of United for Ukraine

October 3, 2022

During the past 7 months, the organizational processes of the UFU were managed by co-founders Olga Hamama and Nina Levchuk. Already two days after the full-scale invasion, a group of 60 volunteers in the core team launched the UFU platform to help Ukrainians who left for Europe. Rapidly, the initiative turned into a structured volunteer organization. Together with Olga and Nina, UFU engaged international partners and brought together leaders of large technology companies, lawyers, representatives of corporate business and non-governmental organizations.

The organization is growing and developing rapidly, so, naturally, there was a need to build a sustainable long-lasting organisational structure. We are pleased to announce that as a major step towards further development UFU, Dana Pavlychko, a top professional and Ukrainian thought leader, will now hold the position of CEO.

Dana holds a master's degree in public policy at King's College London, is a member of the Selection Committee of the United World College Ukraine and a member of The Aspen Institute Kyiv. In addition, Dana owns Osnovy Publishing, one of the leading publishing houses in Ukraine.

We are thrilled to welcome Dana and looking forward to a joint successful future!
