The Y actively promotes a culture free from bias and injustice. We are dedicated to removing institutional and systemic barriers that result in oppression and racism. We will be accountable to marginalized communities for creating equitable and sustainable environments where social justice is woven into every facet of our programs, and by caring for our communities in a culturally versatile and respectful manner.

Diversity, Inclusion, and Global (DIG) Engagement Mission Statement

At the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles, we believe we are at our best when we are focused on equity and have fully integrated the practices of Diversity, Inclusion, & Global Engagement into all areas of our operations!


Employee Resource Groups create supportive, inclusive spaces within the LA Y for staff at all levels, with all backgrounds. Through an ERG, you can find career & personal development tools, have fun, network, engage underserved communities and make your mark by helping to facilitate change.
