Who we are
United Way of Massachusetts Bay brings people together to promote positive lasting change in our community.
As a results-driven organization, we embrace Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as integral to our success at all levels of our organization and our work.
We are part of a diverse community that includes agency partners and participants, donors, leadership, and vendors. We strive to uplift and empower people that reflect the full diversity of our region, especially people of color, women and non-binary people, LGBTQIA+ persons, foreign-born people, multi-lingual residents, and all people regardless of socioeconomic background, ability, age, political affiliation, religion, and immigration status.
What we believe
We believe people are our strongest assets and value the qualities, strengths, and perspectives each individual brings. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strengthen our organizational effectiveness and operational excellence.
Where we are
We are engaged in the transformative process of leading with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in all that we do. Change that lasts requires an ongoing commitment to transparency in communication and to challenging the systems, policies, and practices that have not historically benefited everyone equitably.
As change agents, our goals are to:
- Create a culture that recognizes, welcomes, and celebrates our diversity and is reflective of the communities we serve
- Create and implement a recruitment, promotion, and retention strategy that embraces, utilizes, and leverages Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at staff, leadership, and board levels
- Collaborate with community partners, donors, and historically under-recognized vendors, contractors, and consultants to impact practices of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the community
Join us in creating positive, lasting change. Live United.
