Race Diversity Equity and Inclusion

United Way of Greater Cleveland is dedicated to the eradication of poverty and social disparities in our community. If we are to make progress to address systemic inequality, we must first address that structural racism and economic inequity are evidentially linked.


Our organization is dedicated to expanding our efforts and knowledge of race, diversity, equity and inclusion (RDEI) for our staff and Board of Directors. Additionally, United Way will be present in conversations on  public policy decisions that have a significant impact in the root causes of poverty.
