About

Courageous Conversations is our virtual event series that explores topics around social justice and racial equity.

During each session, we host leaders in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to share their insights into the social justice issues facing communities of color. Courageous Conversations is intended to encourage collective understanding and action and to explore how, as an organization and as individuals, we can work to build greater equity in our community.

As a learning organization, Mile High United Way has been on our own equity and anti-racism journey. We hope you will join our Courageous Conversations to grow your knowledge and join the fight against systemic racism.

Mile High United Way's Commitment to Equity
For 133 years, Mile High United Way has believed that a community and a country can only succeed when we are united, and that every individual must receive equal opportunity to pursue their dreams and maintain their livelihood. We stand united against the injustices and cruelty of systemic racism. We stand united for the values of equal treatment and equal access to resources. And we recognize that it will take action and it will take work from each one of us.
