We Move United to serve everyone!

At Move United, we recognize that there are inequities that exist within the Disability community, and in how we are serving it. To help us meet our commitment to ensure that we are equitably supporting all, Move United has formed a leadership team on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. This DEI leadership team will provide strategic and tactical insight, direction and perspective as well as recommendations to the Executive Director as to how Move United should dedicate financial, operational and human resources as a long-term investment in its Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

Move United seeks to incite the social change that leads to inclusion of people with disabilities, especially as it relates to sport. In review of our own organization’s composition, structures and programs, we recognize we have shortcomings and are lacking a diverse, inclusive and equitable environment that truly represents the community we should serve. As such, Move United sought knowledgeable and passionate leaders to advance the organization’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion vision as a Leadership Team Member. This is an opportunity to advance DEI and Social and Racial Justice in the Adaptive Sports Community.

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Leadership Team includes a diverse representation of voices from the disability community and will regularly meet to assess and create best practices through policy and programs. The group’s focus is on how Move United may better serve each person with a disability. Members are tasked with identifying the gaps and barriers in the Adaptive Sports community and are champions of necessary change.
