Diversity and Inclusion

Engaging differing viewpoints and perspectives

Just as the university community benefits from differing viewpoints, perspectives, and experiences, inclusion and diversity are imperative for the success of our mission. WFAA values people and the differences that they bring to the organization, and creates an environment in which all staff members and constituents feel respected and have opportunities to thrive.

The range of programs and initiatives to which our work contributes spans every facet of life on campus and in the world. From working with scientists studying the most basic elements of life to talking with donors, members, volunteers, students, and others inspired to support life-changing programs or areas of the university, our work is fundamentally diverse. Attracting, developing, and retaining top talent gives WFAA access to new ideas, promotes better decision making and creates a working environment that promotes respect, collaboration, acceptance, and productivity among people from varying backgrounds. WFAA engages all donors, alumni, students, and friends of the university and encourages diversity, inclusivity, and participation by all of these groups in its activities.
