Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Diversity and inclusion are vital to achieving our statewide mission, living our values and advancing the common good. United Ways of Maine (UWME) fosters and promotes an inclusive environment that leverages the unique contributions of diverse individuals and organizations in all aspects of our work. We know that by bringing diverse individuals and viewpoints together we can collectively and more effectively create opportunities for a better life for all.

UWME takes the broadest possible view of diversity, going beyond visible differences to affirm the essence of all individuals including the realities, background, experiences, skills and perspectives that make all people who they are. Engaging the power of diverse talent and partners results in innovative solutions and the community ownership necessary to address complex community issues.

We oppose all forms of racism and ethnic discrimination.
