Committed to Racial Equity

Because of structural and systemic racism, we must face the root causes and racist systems that created these disparities head-on. This work is a big part of every team member’s role at United Way, and a variety of internal and external committees and working groups have been created with the goal of having a place for every employee to contribute to this work.

We are an equal employment opportunity employer

All qualified applications will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Research shows that women and members of structurally marginalized groups often only apply if they have met all of the qualifications of the job, but in our experience, no one ever meets 100% of the qualifications. United Way encourages you to apply if you’re interested! We look forward to your application.
