Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Organizational Statement

United Way of Dubuque Area Tri-States (UWDATS) commits to promoting equity and inclusion for the diverse population it serves. UWDATS opposes and denounces any sort of discrimination based on race, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, gender, gender or sexual identity, or religion, and seeks to make overcoming structural and systemic forms of oppression or exclusion a priority. It strives to embody justice and fairness in its own procedures, processes, and distribution of resources. UWDATS also recognizes that all individuals are entitled to be provided equitable services and the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. Those served by UWDATS and its community partners should be able to express, and have respect given to, their distinct cultures, values, norms, and behaviors.   

United Way of Dubuque Area Tri-States is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to the principle of inclusion. We value, champion and embrace diversity in all aspects of UWDATS activities. No officers, board members, volunteers or employees will participate in any conduct viewed as discriminatory on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, age, sex, national origin or ancestry, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or any other status protected by law.
