Diversity and Inclusion

United Way of Broward County will continually strive to be a model of diversity, equity, inclusion and justice. United Way of Broward County's Board of Directors, staff and volunteers reflect all of the many faces, belief systems, values, expressions and walks of life, which proudly make up our nation. Together we genuinely demonstrate the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion which enrich all communities. 

To value diversity is to respect and appreciate race, religion, skin color, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, physical abilities, age, parental status, work and behavioral styles and the perspectives of each individual shaped by their nation and experiences. To be inclusive is to leverage diversity by bringing together unique individual backgrounds to collectively and more effectively address the issues facing our communities. 

It is our aim, therefore, that United Way of Broward County's partners, strategies and investments reflect these core values. Diversity, inclusion and equity is a critical component to achieving success in an ever-changing environment. Everyday we experience the dramatic changes occurring in our county: changing demographics and changing needs. Our ability to employ effective inclusion practices and to make them an integral part of our business will enable United Way of Broward County to fulfill its mission of improving the lives by mobilizing the caring power of the culturally diverse people in Broward County.
