UMSG, Inc. is dedicated to upholding the following ideals, adapted from language by the
Society for Human Resource Management, as part of our mission to create an inclusive, diverse,
and safe environment for all:

Our human capital is the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual
differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique
capabilities and talent that our employees, volunteers, and constituents invest in their work
represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and organization’s
achievement as well.

We embrace and encourage our employees, volunteers, and constituents’ differences in age,
color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language,
national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation,
socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make each of them unique.

UMSG, Inc. is committed to ongoing efforts to achieve these ideals through continued and
regular diversity, equity, and inclusion education in group and one-on-one settings, as well as
active recruitment efforts within the University of Maine community.
