Diversity Statement


As a human services organization continuously seeking to deliver community impact and maintain quality service to our donors and clients, United Way of Story County places high value on the concept of diversity.
To value diversity is to respect and appreciate race, religion, skin color, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical abilities, age, parental status, and the perspectives of each individual shaped by their nation and experiences. To be inclusive is to leverage diversity by bringing together unique individual backgrounds to collectively and more effectively address the issues facing our communities.
It is our aim, therefore, that United Way of Story County’s partners, strategies, and investments reflect these core values. Diversity is a critical component to achieving success in an ever-changing environment.
The Board of Directors and President and CEO will provide leadership and collaborate with clients, donors, staff, volunteers, agencies, and community partners to ensure an environment that values diversity.
