Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the heart of what it means to LIVE UNITED.
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 communities. It is our aim, therefore, that our partners, strategies and investments reflect these core values.

United Way of Douglas & Pope Counties opposes all forms of racism.
UWDP recognizes diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values that are critical success factors in achieving United Way’s mission and oppose any discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, skin color, nationality, gender, gender identity, language differences, sexual orientation, physical, mental, and/or mental disabilities, age, socioeconomic status, work and behavioral styles, parental status, veteran status, and the perspectives of each individual shaped by their nation, culture, and/or experiences. 

A focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our work is essential to the continued relevance of United Way as a partner of choice. 
We must be a leader in the fight for equity and strive to create communities where everyone has the resources, opportunities, and support they need to thrive.
