U-HELM was co-founded in 2018 by Drs. Molly Conroy and Kola Okuyemi. In December 2020, Dr. April Mohanty, a U-HELM alumna, joined Drs. Conroy and Okueymi in the leadership of U-HELM. The three co-directors provide leadership for the program, including strategic guidance, design, implementation, and evaluation. Not only do they use their connections and resources to make many sessions and guest speakers possible, they have a pivotal interest in each U-HELM Fellow.

Additional program management is provided by Dr. Melanie Steiner-Sherwood.
