Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion - United Way Alberta Capital Region

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We believe that each of us has a role to play in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in our workplace and our community. We seek to approach every situation with empathy, understanding, reflection, and collaboration to understand someone else’s perspective — whether our customers, colleagues, or community. We are united as one team, together.

What We Do

Woven into everything we do is our focus on advancing equity. When we work to ensure that no one in our community is left behind, we must recognize that discrimination due to race, religion, gender identity, sexuality, and disabilities creates inequity and systemic barriers.

United Way is committed to always listening, learning, and growing. We aim to foster genuine collaboration, respecting and acknowledging unique perspectives and needs. By understanding and aligning our work with community, we ensure that our support goes where it is needed most.

To that end, United Way has adopted the Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Benchmarks to guide our work in advancing DEI at United Way.
