DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION & BELONGING STATEMENT
“For all” is a simple, but powerful phrase. Without it, the YMCA’s mission is incomplete. Our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging creates better communities, a better country, and a better world.
Our core values are caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility—they guide everything we do.
Our Commitment to Diversity: The Y is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life working side by side to strengthen communities. Together, we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of means, abilities and/or dimension of diversity, has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity. Diversity includes all the ways in which people differ, and it encompasses all the different characteristics that make one individual or group different from another.
Our Commitment to Equity: The Y actively promotes a culture free from bias and injustice. We are dedicated to recognizing and removing institutional and systemic barriers that result in oppression and racism. We will be accountable to marginalized communities for creating equitable and sustainable environments where social justice is woven into every facet of our organization, and by caring for our communities in a culturally versatile and respectful manner.
Our Commitment to Inclusion: At the Y, we believe that our communities are stronger and more vibrant when everyone is and feels included, when their input is valued and when they can fully participate and contribute their unique talents for the greater good.
Our Commitment to Belonging: We are committed to creating and fostering a culture where people feel they belong and feel safe, both emotionally and physically. We acknowledge the importance of a sense of belonging – the freedom to be your genuine and authentic self while feeling supported and accepted.
