Diversity, Inclusion & Global Engagement at our Y

The Eugene Family YMCA is a diverse organization of people joined together by a shared commitment to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. Cause-driven YMCAs are led by staff and volunteers who intentionally and continuously strive to promote an inclusive organizational culture that values all dimensions of diversity, strengthens inclusion, and builds global community in the U.S. and abroad. In short, we are committed to ensuring equity and justice, and actively promoting a culture of equity free from bias and injustice. We strive to achieve equal access, resolve inequities and remove institutional barriers that limit the ability of all people to develop their full potential.

We are on a journey to become an anti-racist, multicultural organization that values human diversity in all its forms and actively opposes racism by connecting and educating people and mobilizing community action. We firmly assert that Black Lives Matter.
