Diversity & Equal Opportunity


UWAC strives to be a model of diversity and a champion for welcoming and providing services to all. Our Board has adopted the following diversity policy:

“United Way of Adams County values the commitment and diversity of experience, ethnicity, socioeconomic conditions, geographic location and professional background of our board. UWAC believes that its board members and staff should be and are representatives of the community it serves and that the agency relies on their dedication, expertise and judgment to make a difference in the lives of our community.”

UWAC will not engage in or tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment and will cooperate fully with the applicable regulations of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 regarding equal employment opportunity. We affirm our policy of nondiscrimination as follows:

• We will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, age, gender, national origin or ancestry, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, or disability.
• We will apply this policy to board and committee participation, service delivery and employment practices including recruitment, hiring, assignment, promotion, discipline, and termination.
• We will apply this policy to our relationship with partner agencies, the community we serve and the general public.
