Reducing Barriers to Employment & Advancement
At United Way, we believe everyone deserves permanent employment with a livable wage at a workplace where they are treated with dignity and have opportunities for advancement.

However, this is not the reality for many individuals in our community. In 2018, the Black unemployment rate in Wisconsin was nearly three times that of Whites, according to American Community Survey data.

United Way’s Diversity Leadership Society has set a goal: reduce barriers to employment and advancement.
