Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At United Way of Addison County (UWAC), we hold firm in our belief that diversity, equity and inclusion are critical success factors in our ability to advance the common good in our communities.

At UWAC, we take the broadest possible view of diversity: 

We value the visible and invisible qualities that make you who you are.

We welcome that every person brings a unique perspective and experience to advance our mission and progress our fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community.

We believe that each community member, donor, volunteer, advocate, and employee must have equal access to solving community problems.

We strive to include diversity, equity, and inclusion practices at the center of our daily work.

We commit to using these practices for our business and our communities.

The Board and Staff of United Way of Addison County are committed to ensuring that our strategies and investments reflect these core values.  Diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the heart of what it means to LIVE UNITED and advance the common good; to be a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization is fundamental to achieving our mission and goals in education, income and health.
