Diversity Statement


United Way of North Central Iowa

Statement of Our Commitment for Inclusiveness & Diversity



United Way of North Central Iowa is committed to fostering awareness and understanding that valuing and managing diversity is an integral part of our work, in its own operations and its encouragement as an important principle for our community.


United Way of North Central Iowa strives to create and maintain an organizational environment that enables all people to perform to their potential by actively valuing different backgrounds and perspectives, fostering teamwork and collaboration among a heterogeneous community, and maximizing gifts made to the

United Way
by using the skills, talents, and resources of all members of our community.


In considering our effectiveness in developing and sustaining an inclusive organization, we will value individuals without regard to race, religion, color, gender, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, physical challenge, or age.  In addition, we will strive to involve individuals of diverse educational attainment, socioeconomic status, work experience, political beliefs, and geographic background.


Our ability to be inclusive, to embrace diversity, and to make it an integral part of our business will enable us to fulfill the mission of our

United Way
and serve our community more effectively.  It will also help us to attract new volunteers, new employees, and new supporters.


The organization will comply with all local, state, and Federal laws regarding non-discrimination and serve as an equal opportunity employer.


To fulfill our commitment and live our value of inclusiveness,

United Way
of North Central Iowa will implement the following:


  1. Identify annual targets for the organization's diversity and inclusiveness.


  1. Review annually all-volunteer committees, Board of Directors, and staff to evaluate our organizational diversity and develop plans to ensure our diversity targets are met.


  1. Evaluate annually the participation level and interaction of all committee and Board members to ensure there is meaningful involvement by all volunteers and, where appropriate, staff.


We will seek other opportunities to enhance our efforts to promote diversity internally and externally when they will provide added benefit to our work and our community.
