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 seek 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, regional, 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 increased 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 to fulfill our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
African Americans are two times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease and less likely to receive a diagnosis.
The African American Caregiving and Wellness Forum is an annual event that provides the opportunity to learn more about how Alzheimer’s disease impacts the African African community, and how to care for someone living with the disease. The Forum connects caregivers to information, organizations and support networks that help you manage the challenges of caregiving.
View this clip from the 2016 African American Caregiving and Wellness Forum. We look forward to seeing you in 2017.
