Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement of Principle

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 improve the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community.

We believe every United Way community member, donor, volunteer, advocate, and employee has an obligation to embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion and be actively anti-racist in their thoughts, work and actions.

We strive to listen to the stories of people most affected with an open ear and heart and without comparison, to understand and provide support and empathy. 

We aspire to implement strategic plans that reflect our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

We affirm our support for local initiatives that root out discrimination ranging from institutional racism that includes employment, housing, healthcare, education and political participation to racial profiling in our Hunterdon neighborhoods.

We commit to efforts that combat rampant racial inequalities faced by our clients, staff, and members of our communities.

We commit to upholding our mission by grounding our work in anti-racism, diversity, inclusion and equity for people minoritized among us.

Join us in embracing diversity, equity and inclusion for every person in every community. Everyone deserves an opportunity to thrive.
