Message from President / CEO
YMCA of the Rockies puts Christian principles into practice through programs, staff, and facilities in an environment that builds healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. The “for all” part of our mission is very important, and our core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith guide everything we do. In line with our commitment, our Board of Directors adopted a diversity, equity and inclusion statement which confirms, YMCA of the Rockies will reach out to and welcome all people and organizations of good will and ensure that the rich gifts of diversity are reflected and respected at all levels.
Together, we strive to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender expression, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity.
Our organization’s diversity, equity and inclusion strategies advance the Y’s relevance, viability, and impact as a cause-driven organization. They help us to ensure that everyone can access and thrive at our YMCA and our approach puts into action our core belief that in a diverse world, we are stronger when we are inclusive and equitable. Reflecting our mission, we are proud to welcome all to YMCA of the Rockies!
Julie Watkins, President/CEO
