Commitment to Opportunity, Diversity, and Equity (CODE)
The Urban League of Nebraska is proud to partner with local nonprofits and businesses for the Commitment to Opportunity, Diversity, and Equity (CODE) Initiative.
CODE was born as a sustainable initiative to address diversity, inclusivity, equity and access to opportunity in Greater Omaha. Research conducted in 2015 showed African American young professionals were five-to-six times less likely than their Caucasian peers to recommend Greater Omaha as a place to live, work, and play, among other issues. Two years of focus groups, additional research, and collaboration among organizations, nonprofits, and corporations further revealed research data were not only perceptual but also behavioral. Something had to be done – because “nothing” is never an option.
More than a collaborative new diversity and inclusion initiative, it’s a call to action for those who believe we can and must do better. CODE is our Commitment to Opportunity, Diversity, and Equity for Greater Omaha.
