Statement of Diversity

Underlying the role and mission of Capital Area United Way is a firm belief in the dignity of all people. We reaffirm this belief in our politics which guide and direct employment practices, agency and program funding, volunteer recruitment, and service delivery. Capital Area United Way values diversity and desires to promote respect for the dignity of all people without regard to race, creed, color, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, gender, age, or national origin. United Way promotes the full realization of this policy through the positive recognition of the value of diversity.
