Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

United Way of the Capital Area believes that Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging are about creating fair access and opportunities to thrive for all people in all communities. 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 value and promote inclusivity in all aspects of our work by aligning our culture and business practices to be a beacon of justice and inclusivity for everyone. We believe that we are strong only when we embrace and celebrate the rich diversity and gifts of all people. Centering Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging are at the heart of what it means to LIVE UNITED.
