Ada Regional United Way, Inc is committed to operating its organization in a manner where diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are fully integrated into everything we do for the benefit of our employees, volunteers and the community we serve.
We work with residents and public and private partners to create solutions that ensure everyone has the resources, supports, opportunities, and networks they need to thrive.
We commit to leveraging all of our assets (convening, strategic investments, awareness building, advocacy) to create more equitable communities.
We unequivocally denounce racism and ethnic discrimination because it undermines the well-being and vitality of our communities.
We welcome the fact 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 acknowledge that our community is composed of people who are from diverse backgrounds, languages, ethnicities, races, cultures, religions, genders and sexual orientations.
We strive to provide an equal opportunity for all and to treat each person as a valued member of our community.
Diversity is having a seat at the table, Inclusion is having a voice, and Equity is having that voice be heard.
