Equity, Inclusion and Diversity


United Way of Norman is committed to making our region a better place to live, work and thrive for everyone. We align resources and build partnerships that work together effectively for all and position our community for a better tomorrow.

How We Build Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity

Valuing Every Voice

Creating a community that’s a safe, healthy home for all is central to everything we do. We partner with programs and agencies that develop equitable conditions and opportunities to help all people live their best possible lives.

United Way’s goal is to mobilize the caring power of our communities to improve lives. We envision inclusive, resilient, and equitable communities. No singular entity, institution, or business can address the many issues and close the gaps that contribute to disparities in education, health, and economic mobility.

Funding Our Community

United Way applies an equity lens to understand better how needs are experienced differently by varying groups. This helps us make funding decisions that consider the roles race diversity and inclusion play in meeting needs.
