Home / Programs / 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.
United Way’s mission to create pathways out of poverty and ensure that no one in our community is left behind, requires us to recognize that individual, group, and systemic discrimination due to race, religion, gender identity, sexuality, and disabilities create barriers that may result in people living in poverty.
We will not be successful in addressing poverty if we do not intentionally work to break down those barriers. To that end, United Way has adopted the Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Benchmarks to guide our work in advancing DEI at United Way.
