Did you know the YMCA of Greenville is a part of the YMCA of the USA’s Diversity, Inclusion, and Global (DIG) Innovation network? The DIG Innovation network is a cohort of Ys throughout the country in fast-growing areas that are leading the Y movement’s efforts in outreach to diverse and underserved communities and driving program innovation so that everyone, regardless of who they are or where they come from has an opportunity to reach their full potential.

Through the DIG Innovation network, the YMCA of Greenville uses these guiding principles in organizational strategies, operations, and program development:

  • Lead with empathy in all interactions and activities.
  • Recognize, value, and embrace all dimensions of diversity and work toward the greatest possible inclusion.
  • Foster a safe exchange of ideas, beliefs, and perspectives within and through the Y locally and globally.
  • Advance social equity and bridge-building across and within all communities.

You can participate in DIG Innovation network programs, too! We’ll be rolling out programs, forums, crucial conversations and other DIG Innovation network ideas through our Ys soon.
