Our Mission: UNITING TO THRIVE
Equity and Inclusion Statement
United Way of Marathon County strives for equity, the intentional inclusion of everyone in society, and for our community. Equity is achieved when systemic, institutional, and historical barriers based on race, gender, sexual orientation, and other identities are dismantled and no longer predict socioeconomic, education, and health outcomes.
We seek to dismantle disparities and strive to engage residents and community members, especially those whose voices have traditionally been marginalized, in the shared work of fortifying equity and empowerment. We work with public and private partners to co-create solutions that ensure everyone has the resources, support, opportunities, and networks they need to thrive. We commit to leveraging all of our assets (e.g., convening, strategic investments, awareness building, advocacy) to create a more equitable community where all people in Marathon County are valued and safe.
