Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy

Jefferson County United Way is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion.

Our board members, volunteers, and staff are the most valuable assets we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent that our employees and volunteers invest in their work represent a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and organization's achievement as well.

We embrace and encourage differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family, or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our organization unique.

Jefferson County United Way complies with applicable state and local laws governing non-discrimination in employment. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment including but not limited to hiring, placement, promotion, termination, lay-off, recall, leaves of absence, compensation, and training.
