DEAI Statement

UAC is committed to Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion (DEAI).

The Urban Affairs Coalition's strength lies in its diversity among a broad range of people that represent the organization. UAC respects, values, and celebrates the individual differences and intersectionality (such as: age, education, ethnicity, culture, gender, persons with disabilities, family status, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, veteran status, political and religious beliefs) that make each individual who they are.

UAC is committed to attracting and sustaining a talented workforce that reflects the diversity of the community where we live and work. Our commitment is vital to the success of our mission, so that all persons can access services that are diverse as the clients and communities we serve; and that our collaborative work equitably improves the quality of life in the region.

Through UAC’s Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion (DEAI) initiatives, we will continue to foster an environment and culture where differences are valued and expressed freely; and all members of our society have the support they need to take risks, learn, collaborate, and triumph in all things they strive to do.
