UCOM's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusiveness
Diversity is a part of UCOM’s value system and is essential to the organization's ability to develop and deliver programs that support its mission. UCOM’s policies reflect the belief that organizational performance is greatly enhanced when people with different backgrounds and perspectives are engaged in an organization’s activities and decision-making process. UCOM actively seeks to promote access, equity and inclusiveness, and to discourage discrimination based on race, creed, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and other factors that deny the essential humanity of all people. This principle is a lens through which all of the work of the UCOM is viewed. As such, UCOM will continue to raise issues of inclusion and promote diversity in our operational activities.
Our commitment to diversity is reflected in the composition of our staff, management, and Board of Directors. We also are committed to using diverse vendors, contractors and consultants, and promoting equal opportunity through our business transactions. We will strive to make our facilities and communications accessible to all. Because of UCOM’s commitment to diversity, staff will pursue opportunities to discuss issues related to diversity and inclusion.
