Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Below is United Way of the Yampa Valley’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement of Principle which outlines our commitment to building sustainable, inclusive, and resilient organizations and communities in the Yampa Valley.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement of Principle

We take the broadest possible view of diversity.

We Value

the visible and invisible qualities that make you who you are.

We Welcome

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 the Yampa Valley.

We Believe

that each United Way of the Yampa Valley community member, donor, volunteer, advocate, and employee must have equal access to solving community problems.

We Strive

to include diversity, equity, and inclusion practices at the center of our daily work.

We Commit

to using these practices for our business and our community.

Join us in embracing diversity, equity and inclusion for every person in every community.


Anti-Racism and Ethnic Discrimination Statement

We Recognize

structural racism/ethnic discrimination and other forms of oppression have contributed to persistent disparities which United Way of the Yampa Valley seeks to dismantle.

We Understand

that these disparities have existed in the past and persist into the present.

We Acknowledge

that these inequities are the result of policies and practices that work to marginalize entire populations of people.

We Unequivocally Denounce

racism/ethnic discrimination because it undermines the well-being and vitality of our community.

Our United Way

strives to engage community members, especially those whose voices have traditionally been marginalized.

We Work With

residents and public and private partners to co-create solutions that ensure everyone has the resources, supports, opportunities and networks they need to thrive.

We Commit

to leverage all of our assets (convening, strategic investments, awareness building, advocacy) to create a more equitable Yampa Valley.
