Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement of Principle

In alignment with United Way Worldwide and its bylaws, United Way of McPherson County strives to be a model of diversity and inclusion.  We respect value, and celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics, and perspectives that are represented in our local community.  We believe that collaboration allows us to collectively and effectively address the issues that face the communities within our sphere of influence.  Therefore, it is our aim that our partners, strategies, and investments reflect these core values.

  • ...recognize that every person brings a unique perspective and experience to advance our mission and progress our fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community.
  • ...believe that each United Way community member, donor, volunteer, advocate, and employee must have equal access to tools, positions, and opportunities to create a strong community.  
  • ...strive to include diversity, equity, and inclusion practices at the center of our daily work.
