Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We believe that every person in Southern Nevada must have equal access to solving community problems. 
We welcome the unique perspectives and experiences that individuals bring to advancing our mission and progressing our fight for the success of every person in our community.
We take the broadest possible view of diversity understanding that everyone has different values, beliefs and lived experiences. We value the intersectionality, the interconnected fabric of experiences including but not limited to race, class, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and disability, that develops each person’s unique identity. 
We commit to entering partnerships and programs that address the inequities keeping Nevadans from success. 
We dedicate ourselves to using these principles for our business and our communities and invite others to join us in uniting for Nevada’s success.


When you give to United Way of Southern Nevada, you're supporting the entire community, not just one cause.

We surround our community with the programs and resources that address today's biggest issues and help prevent tomorrow's.
