The values of inclusion, equity and justice are central to the UW's mission as a public university, and the fulfillment of those values is what the University's Race & Equity Initiative seeks to achieve. The recent passage of the Statement of Business Equity by the Board of Regents codifies these values in university policy, making it clear that business practices will be guided by a belief in inclusiveness and equity. UW Bothell will actively engage with small, local, minority & women-owned, veteran, and diverse businesses to create opportunity and transparency, while supporting the broader economy of Washington state.
