Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

Diversity Statement

As a human services organization continuously seeking to deliver community impact and maintain quality service to our donors and clients, the United Way places high value on the concept of diversity.

The United Way values the uniqueness of the individual, the power of the collective good and the importance of communities. We promote a climate that welcomes, understands and respects the diversity of our clients, donors, staff, volunteers, agencies and community partners. Dimensions of diversity include but are not limited to race, ethnicity, cultural orientation, national origin, language, religious belief, disability, gender, sexual orientation, and age.

The United Way is committed to incorporating practices that enhance diversity into all areas of activity, including the recruitment and retention of staff and volunteers from diverse backgrounds. Staff and volunteers are supported through training to address the needs of all individuals and communities served.

The Board of Directors and Executive Director will provide leadership and collaborate with donors, staff, volunteers, agencies and community partners to ensure an environment that values diversity.
