Diversity. Equity...and inclusion. These words seem to be on the minds of leaders in every company, regardless of the industry. While organizations are attempting to create a better workplace culture for their employees, a term often lost in the weeds is dignity. Dignity is the right to be valued, treated with respect, and ultimately allowing a person to maintain a sense of pride and self-worth through various interactions. Dignity is a concept that exists within the intersections of diversity, equity, and inclusion

While United Way has been and continues to be deeply dedicated to this work, we know that in collaboration with community partners our efforts will make an even greater impact on the people we serve.

On this episode of Living Local, Miles Sigh, a recent graduate of Marquette University and a Milwaukee Fellows intern at United Way working closely with United Way’s Reducing Barriers to Employment & Advancement initiative talks to Bill Kruegler and Michael Adams of Milwaukee JobsWork. Through the Reducing Barriers to Employment & Advancement initiative, United Way funds Milwaukee JobsWork programming that helps individuals not only find a job, but gain the skills and confidence they need to succeed and find a position where they are treated with dignity and have opportunities for advancement.
