Diversity and Inclusion
United Way of the Lower Mainland strives to be a model of diversity and inclusion. It is our goal to attract and develop a diverse and inclusive Board of Directors, staff and volunteers who represent the many faces, cultures and walks of life in our community. We believe that bringing diverse individuals together and valuing their unique attributes, characteristics and perspectives allows us to collectively and more effectively address the issues that face our communities.
