Equity & Inclusion Statement
We believe in Equity, Justice, and Inclusivity
As a community, our strength comes from our diversity. We must 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.
At United Way of Broome County, equity and inclusion inform every aspect of our work. We understand from experience that the best solutions are crafted from diverse perspectives and stakeholders.
We envision a future with greater social and economic inclusivity, a society that provides power and access to all people. No one organization or individual can do this alone. We will continue to seek input actively and fully engage a broad range of partners to develop solutions that will result in long-lasting change.
We are intentional in our commitment to helping build an inclusive and equitable community where everyone, including those historically marginalized, especially Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), has the resources needed to not only survive but thrive.
United Way of Broome County denounces structural racism and systemic oppression in all its forms.
We will continue to leverage and build upon the resources, talents, strengths, and opportunities available in our community. We commit to aligning our culture and business practices to be a beacon of equity, inclusion, and belonging for all people.
