Diversity and Inclusion Statement

United Way strives to be a model of diversity and inclusion. Our Board of Trustees, staff, and volunteers reflect the many faces, cultures and walks of life that proudly make up our community.
We respect, value and celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics, and perspectives that make each person who they are. We also believe that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to collectively and more effectively address the issues that face our community.
More than 125 years ago, the diverse leaders who founded United Way crossed cultural, religious and economic boundaries to make a difference through collective action. Today, diversity and inclusion remain vital to achieving our mission of propelling individuals and families to reach their fullest potential.
United Way fosters and promotes an inclusive environment that leverages the unique contributions of diverse individuals and organizations so that we can collectively and effectively create opportunities whereby all can thrive.
Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of what it means to LIVE UNITED.
