General Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement
United Way of Greater Atlanta seeks to engage the entire community in our work without regard to race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity, & expression, disability, sexual orientation, veteran-status, familial status or socio-economic status.That commitment is reflected in all aspects of United Way’s work – including our staff, our volunteers, our partners and the communities we serve.
United Way of Greater Atlanta’s vision and mission center on inclusion and equity. Our vision is that “Greater Atlanta is a community where all individuals and families thrive – a community where everyone has the opportunity to live a healthy life, acquire the education and skills they need to earn a good living and have a roof over their heads.”
United Way of Greater Atlanta’s Child Well-Being Agenda is an equity agenda, focused on addressing the systemic issues that put Greater Atlanta at the bottom of the list of U.S. cities in terms of opportunity and mobility for low-income children and make a child’s zip code of birth into their destiny. Child Well-being is the presence of the opportunity, resources and social supports for children to meet their full human potential, regardless of zip code.
Our work and our investments are fully focused on the 500,000 children living in communities with low or very low Child Well-Being. Our goal is to move 250,000 of those children into improved states of well-being by 2027.
