Metro United Way Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement
Our vision and mission reflect our fundamental belief that all people belong and deserve fairness, justice, and inclusivity.
Our strength comes from our diversity and we celebrate the visible and invisible qualities that make each person unique, including race, gender, age, sexuality, ability, religion, national origin, gender identity, and other identities.
We commit to aligning our culture and business practices to be a beacon of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging for all people.
IS METRO UNITED WAY INCLUSIVE OF ALL GROUPS?
Metro United Way will reflect diversity in its organizational governance, volunteer structure, staffing, funding decisions and policies. Through our commitment to diversity, we will strive to be a role model in our community, joining with other organizations to strengthen an effective human service system that reaches out to all people in our seven-county community. Metro United Way’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion statement reflects its own commitment to diversity in its Board of Directors, volunteer governance and structure, staffing and purchasing.
Metro United Way’s network of agencies embraces both special constituencies and broader community needs. In fact, when you support Metro United Way, your donation touches two out of three people in our community at some point in their lives, through the programs of over 100 local organizations. That’s a truly diverse population. These programs help kids succeed, build strong families, promote health and independence and strengthen neighborhoods.
