Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity Inclusion Statement

 United Way of the Greenbrier Valley seeks to engage the entire community in our work without regard to race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, age, gender identity and expression, disability, sexual orientation, veteran-status, familial status, or socio-economic status. That commitment is reflected in all aspects of the United Way’s mission, including staff, board members, volunteers, our partner agencies, and the communities we serve. United Way of the Greenbrier Valley’s vision and mission center on inclusion and equity. Our vision is that every child in every county should receive a good education, every citizen should feel financially stable, and every community should be healthy and strong. We commit to equity as a core value and practice to advance the United Way’s mission of connecting people, resources, and organizations to create a thriving community for everyone. We acknowledge that we can only achieve success if we recognize, raise up, and provide support for leaders from underrepresented areas of the communities we serve. United Way is committed to engaging these leaders as partners, donors, board members, and volunteers. Further, we commit to intentionally creating pathways for them to be included in decision –making and leadership roles within our own and other organizations. United Way of the Greenbrier Valley believes that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to collectively and effectively address the issues that challenge our communities. It is our goal that our partners, strategies, and investments reflect this core value.
