Racial Equity and Inclusion

Advancing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion For All

Racism, discrimination, unequal treatment and hate have no place in our community.

The Y is a beacon for good and systemic change. As an organization focused on strengthening the community and building common ground, we have been working to support equity and inclusion. And while we've made progress, we realize this work must continue.

Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion creates better people, better communities and a better world. This commitment is woven into our Mission - not only compelling us to do more but demanding it.

"I am honored and excited to join the Y of the Triangle to help build upon and strengthen the DEI work already underway. I very much look forward to being a part of such a storied organization whose goal is to directly, positively and equitably impact the health and well-being of the communities it serves."

Dr. Lisa Scott, Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer, YMCA of the Triangle
