Diversity and Inclusion Statement

At the Alzheimer's Association, diversity is imperative and integral to our mission. It is vital to what we do and a promise we make to those we serve. Our team of dedicated professionals understands that valuing diversity and inclusiveness is critical to the success of our mission.

We see to be inclusive of the millions of people currently affected by Alzheimer's disease, their caregivers, and the communities in which they live. The Alzheimer's Association views diversity broadly and includes considerations of, but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, region, place, or national origin, religion, language and persons with disabilities.

As the American population ages and becomes increasingly more diverse, the Alzheimer's Association will expand its mission activities and initiatives to remain highly inclusive and meet the demand for culturally and linguistically sensitive information and increase awareness to persons living with the disease.

The Alzheimer's Association will continue to cultivate relationships with diverse communities by sharing our time, talent, resources and exchanging ideas. As such, our diversity and inclusiveness charter will help us fulfill our vision of a world without Alzheimer's Disease.
