Our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging Mission

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Fostering DEI&B in our Workplace, Community, and Partnerships

United Educators (UE) aims to foster an inclusive and supportive culture that embraces diverse ideas and opinions, reflects our membership’s diversity through our insurance policies and risk management services, and provides opportunities for all to succeed.

Many liability risks arise from inequities and exclusion in education. When our members and partners treat diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B) as a moral imperative to create more inclusive institutions, we work to help mitigate these critical risks.
