Diversity and Inclusive Statement
At the Alzheimer's Association, diversity
is imperative and integral to our mission.
It is vital to what we do, and is 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 such as,
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 to remain 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 within 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.
