About LIA

In our deep and heartfelt commitment to creating an equitable world, The Winters Group developed a corporate social responsibility arm—Live Inclusively® Actualized (LIA)—that focuses on the efforts surrounding this commitment.

LIA Vision

We envision a world that has fully actualized access, equity, inclusion and justice for all people.

LIA Mission

We aim to break down systemic barriers that impact BIPOC communities through sponsorship and grant making to organizations and programs by and for BIPOC; and service opportunities that promote inclusion, equity and justice.

Meet Our 2021 Live Inclusively® Actualized Grant Recipients!

We are so pleased to announce the recipients of the fourth annual Live Inclusively® Actualized grant program! In 2021, we distributed a total of $100,000 in grants among 12 nonprofit organizations, all of whom are committed to breaking down systemic barriers in their communities.

We chose to emphasize support for organizations by and for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color), as we increasingly shift our focus to social and racial justice. Collectively, these organizations cover programs in theatre and arts, mental health, literacy, mentoring, disability advocacy, community empowerment, and more.

Commit to #LiveInclusively!

I commit to be intentional in living inclusively.

I commit to spending more time getting to know myself and understanding my culture. It is in understanding myself, that I am better positioned to understand others. I will acknowledge that I don’t know what I don’t know, but I will not use what is unconscious as an excuse.

I will be intentional in exposing myself to difference. If I don’t know, I will ask. If I am asked, I will assume positive intent. Most importantly, I will accept my responsibility in increasing my own knowledge and understanding.

I commit to speaking up and speaking out, even when I am not directly impacted, for there is no such thing as neutrality in the quest for equity, justice, and inclusion.

I will strive to accept, and not just tolerate; respect, even if I don’t agree; and be curious, not judgmental. I commit to pausing and listening. I will be empathetic to the experiences and perspectives of my “others”. I will use my privilege positively, and get comfortable with my own discomfort.

I commit to knowing, getting, and doing better than I did yesterday—keeping in mind my commitment to live inclusively is a journey, not a destination.
