Diversity and Inclusion

United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties bridges the gaps to education, financial stability and health for every person in our community.



We take the broadest possible view of diversity.

We value the visible and invisible qualities that make you who you are.

We welcome that every person brings a unique perspective and experience to advance our mission.

We believe that each community member, donor, volunteer, advocate and United Way employee must have equal access to solving community problems.

We strive to include diversity, equity and inclusion practices at the center of our daily work.

We commit to using these practices for our business and our communities.

Join us in embracing diversity, equity and inclusion for every person in every community.




United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties (UWMOC) seeks to engage the entire community in our work without regard to race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity and expression, ability, sexual orientation, veteran status, familial status or socio-economic status. That commitment is reflected in all aspects of United Way – including our staff, volunteers, partners and the communities we serve.

UWMOC’s mission and vision center on inclusion and equity. Our mission is to bridge the gaps to education, financial stability and health for every person in our community. We envision a community where everyone achieves their greatest potential through a quality education, income stability and healthy lives. We champion policies and programs that seek to remove the barriers and inequitable systems keeping our residents from accessing the services they need to be successful in life.

Our United Way is committed to embracing diversity, advocating for opportunity and advancement for all. We are dedicating ourselves and taking action to dismantle the policies and practices ingrained in our society that result in racial and economic injustice. To achieve equity, we must unite as a society and commit to systemic change.

UWMOC will continue to champion our core value of inclusivity across all sectors, bringing business, philanthropic, community and civic leaders together to permanently break the cycle of poverty.

Now more than ever, we must Live United.
