Diversity, Equity, Inclusion at UWCNM

Fostering change in an equitable and sustainable way to make our workplace and community one in which everyone has an equitable opportunity to thrive and succeed. We start by recognizing, and seeking to dismantle, systemic racism and oppressions that create barriers to genuine equity, especially for Black, Indigenous, People of Color and other marginalized identities of people.

We strive for an environment in which all differences are recognized, valued, and celebrated.

DEI United is a partnership between UWCNM and the Albuquerque Community Foundation created to support, fund, and advance Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion practices in the four counties each organization serves. DEI United identifies short- and long-term practices and solutions to help foster change leading to more equitable, racially just, and sustainable solutions for systemic change within our central NM community.

A centerpiece of the work is an initiative called
Community Conversations which invites community feedback to help inform how philanthropy can best contribute to racial equity and social justice solutions.

Help support our efforts by donating to the
DEI United Fund today.
