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. We will continue to cultivate relationships with diverse communities by sharing our time, talent, resources and exchanging ideas.
