United Way of Southern Nevada is an equal opportunity employer. With a diverse mix of talents, skill sets and private sector and nonprofit experience, UWSN’s employee base is a deep well of resources. UWSN has its fair share of United Way historians, those that have been with the organization for more than 5 years and those that have brought United Way best practices with them from other markets. That said, new talent is also a part of our employee base, with employees with less tenure but with unique skill sets.
Many of our staff are Las Vegas natives. Having grown up in this community with great loyalty and appreciation for it, they also provide a unique perspective on its challenges, successes, and opportunities. Our employees are very different yet all collectively share the desire to work hard, extend resources, and make a difference in our community. They come from such varied experiences as Wall Street, the banking industry, start-ups, blue chip national companies, national philanthropies, Madison Avenue, the gaming industry, and the public health and school systems. From potluck lunches to Secret Bunny in the Spring, our employees spend time together lending a hand in various departments or in simply sharing a laugh and a moment through our activities. Many employees have likened our culture to that of a “family”. We are proud to hear that kind of comparison.
After all, we spend more time at work than we do anywhere else, so it should be fun.
