At United Way of the Coalfield (UWC), diversity and inclusion are part of every aspect of our work. We understand that the best solutions are crafted by diverse perspectives and stakeholders. We seek to engage the entire community in our work without regard to race, color, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, marital status, disability, veteran status, national origin, pregnancy, ancestry, socio-economic status or any other category protected by law.
UWC values the diversity of our stakeholders because we believe that:
- diversity adds to organizational excellence when we tap the skills, talents and resources of people of different backgrounds.
- diversity of voices and perspectives improves our responsiveness and ability to understand community needs, strengths and resources.
- diversity makes us better stewards of donor dollars when we reach out to all people.
