Diversity and Inclusion

United Way of Champaign County is in the process of establishing a Board of Directors Executive Committee-level position to focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. A DEI task force of Board members was formed in summer 2020 to define the role, and the new position is expected to be filled during our February board election.

United Way strives to be a model of diversity and inclusion. Our Board of Directors, staff and volunteers reflect the many faces, cultures and walks of life that proudly make up our world.

We respect, value and celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics and perspectives that make each person who they are. We also believe that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to collectively and more effectively address the issues that face our communities. It is our aim, therefore, that our partners, strategies and investments reflect these core values.
