United Way of Hancock County's vision is to be a model of championing diversity, welcoming and serving everyone. Our goal is to have our Board of Directors, management, staff, and volunteers genuinely demonstrate the principles of diversity, which enrich our community. Diversity is valuing individuals without regard to race, religion, color, gender, nationality, physical challenge, and age. We need diversity because our work has taught us its value. Every day we experience the dramatic changes occurring in our community: changing demographics, changing workplace attitudes, and changing needs of our citizens. Our ability to embrace diversity and to make it an integral part of our business will enable us to serve our community and its citizens more effectively. It will also help us attract new volunteers, new employees, and new investors.
