Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Diversity, equity and inclusion are fundamental values for United Way, both internally and externally. We recognize that structural racism and other forms of oppression have contributed to persistent disparities in our region. We must focus our work on the most marginalized groups and we know that centering race and ethnicity is critical to ending the historical and social inequities that continue to exist in our region.

Staff and board diversity: We’re proud to be able to say that our staff and board demographics reflect the diversity of the four-county region we serve.

Internal diversity work: We strive to reflect the demographics of the diverse communities that we serve on our board and on our staff. We incorporate equity principles and practices in our hiring, promotion and retention policies and hold ourselves accountable for creating United Way’s culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

UWCW’s Equity Action Team is made up of our staff and serves as an advisory body to ensure continuing progress towardour racial equity agenda. The team reviews, advises on and proposes policies, protocols, and activities to ensure that equity is operationalized in United Way’s daily work. The team also creates learning and engagement opportunities for staff to develop their personal understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
