Diversity and Inclusion
We respect, value and celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics and perspectives that make each person who they are. We also believe that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to collectively and more effectively address the issues that face our community. It is our aim, therefore, that our partners, strategies and investments reflect these core values.
Statement of Principle
More than 125 years ago, the diverse community leaders who founded United Way crossed cultural, religious and economic boundaries to make a difference through collective action. Today, diversity and inclusion remain vital to achieving our mission, living our values and advancing the common good.
We understand that there has and still exists a systemic problem of racism in the United States of America, in North Carolina, and even in Davie County. These institutional problems perpetuate a system that denies justice and opportunities to our neighbors, friends, and families. It will not change until we acknowledge the problem and promote a new system that is anti-discriminatory.
United Way fosters and promotes inclusive environment that leverages the unique contributions of diverse individuals and organizations so that we can collectively and effectively create opportunities for a better life for all. We affirm the rights of all people to be treated justly and equitably and to receive mutually positive outcomes for their work and efforts.
United Way takes the broadest possible view of diversity, going beyond visible differences to affirm the essence of all individuals including the realities, background, experiences, skills, and perspectives that make each person who they are. We are adamantly opposed to any type of racial discrimination. Engaging the power of diverse talent and partners results in innovative solutions and the community ownership necessary to address complex community issues.
Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of what it means to LIVE UNITED.
