Community Engagement – The Y. ™For a better us.™ Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA DIG Initiative
The Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA has embarked upon a goal to put focus and intention upon Diversity, Inclusion and Global Equity. You can read about our progress and our promise to the community to continue to lead this effort in the communities we serve in the January 2020 issue of Arlington Today Magazine seen below. Please share and help us spread the good news!
For all is a simple but powerful phrase. Without it, the Y mission is incomplete. Our commitment to diversity, inclusion and global equity creates better communities, a better country and a better world.
The Y is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life working side by side to strengthen communities. Together we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation, has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity.
We know that the key to effectively empowering people to reach their full potential, improving individual and community well-being, and inspiring action in our communities is a passionate, experienced and includes a diverse array of community leaders, individuals, staff, volunteers and members who value what everyone brings to the table.
