DEI Commitment

UNA is ever mindful that we influence the tenor and pace of ethics and values within nonprofit organizations. We recognize that our role is to provide tools, education, and awareness for a wide variety of topics, including Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). We know that creating DEI spaces requires UNA to move beyond our internalization of DEI-focused policies and procedures and is deeply rooted in the understanding that everything we do must be infused with DEI. Therefore, we affirm that the connection of this effort to all aspects of our work and interactions with others must be ever-present. We believe that the health and viability of nonprofits are supported and elevated by UNA’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
