Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
United Way of Greenville County is committed to valuing, understanding, accepting and celebrating all people. Together, we will authentically demonstrate and model the principles of diversity and inclusion which enriches all communities.
We believe our continued success depends on the full and effective utilization of diverse, qualified employees and volunteers by providing equal opportunity in every aspect of the organization without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, national origin, immigration status, physical ability, age, marital status, military status, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, public assistance status or any other classification protected by federal, state or local legislation.
We recognize structural racism and other forms of oppression have contributed to persistent disparities, which United Way seeks to dismantle. We strive to engage all community members, especially those that have been marginalized. We work with residents, and public and private partners to co-create solutions that ensure everyone has the resources, support, opportunities and networks they need to thrive. We commit to leveraging all of our assets (convening, strategic investments, awareness building and advocacy) to create more equitable communities.
United Way is committed to leading the fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in our community — and that means fighting for equity. We continue to share tools and resources designed to support the work of United Way.
Greenville Racial Equity & Economic Mobility (REEM) Commission
United Way of Greenville County is proud to be a founding organization of the Greenville Racial Equity & Economic Mobility (REEM) Commission. The REEM Commission was formed in the summer of 2020 to convene around matters of racial inequities, social justice and disparities in key areas that negatively impact the Black community in Greenville County.
Comprised of community leaders from diverse backgrounds and industries, the REEM Commission is dedicated to listening, analyzing, understanding and learning in order to heal and move forward in more equitable ways for everyone in our community
