Diversity and Inclusion Policy

I. Diversity and Inclusion

The United Way of Broome County strives to be a model of diversity and inclusion. Our Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers reflect the many faces, cultures and walks of life that proudly make up our community.

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 principles.

II. Statement of Principle

In 1918, the community leaders who founded United Way of Broome County 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 for all in Broome County.

United Way of Broome County fosters and promotes an 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.

United Way of Broome County 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.  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.
