Equity

Embracing Equity in Bartholomew County

After three years of conversations devoted to the subject of race, equity and inclusion, United Way of Bartholomew County has developed a better understanding of the challenges our community faces when it comes to inequity. These inequities contribute to the disparities we see in the areas of health, education and financial stability and will continue to hold us back unless we address them. Below, you’ll learn about the tactics United Way of Bartholomew County has developed to help unite our community, better understand each other, and move us forward. You'll also learn how you can stay involved.

Imagine Columbus

Imagine Columbus is a cross-sector coalition (public, private, not-for-profit) that works across the many domains of inclusion: gender, race/ethnicity, LGBQT+, socio-economic status, age, disability, and religion.

Through engaging community members in meaningful discussions and actions, Imagine Columbus seeks to answer the question:  How might we work together to become a more inclusive community?
