As a company, Arrow Senior Living has made learning about and celebrating our unique differences a part of our company culture. So much so that, in recent years, it has become an extension of our core values. And now, going on our second year, Arrow has expanded beyond yearly diversity, equity, and inclusion workshops to create Arrow’s D&I Speaker Series, which pairs special guest speakers with residents from our communities to have conversations on a wide range of topics such as mental health, PRIDE, Juneteenth, and so much more. We believe that sparking conversations on what some may believe to be sensitive topics helps to shed light on misconceptions and ultimately brings about understanding as it relates to the experiences of others. This ensures our employees and residents have the tools to build a safe place to live and work, one where a diverse group can come together and feel equally seen, heard, and included.
At Hudson Grande Senior Living, DEI goes beyond training and mentoring. It is a way of life. One of my favorite conversations thus far this past year was A Cancer Survivorship Conversation with Jennifer Johnmeyer.
I enjoyed the DEI conversation in that it showed that cancer can be fought and defeated. Both participants were able to survive the necessary treatments and do it with a positive attitude. Their courage and bravery were shown in the video as they fought this vicious disease. My heart went out to them as they described how this disease first became their reality, then their nightmare.
I believe DEI conversations can spotlight our residents and give them something they can give to their loved ones as remembrances. It also gives the residents a chance to talk about something that is especially important to them.
These conversations have only just begun, and I look forward to the conversations to come and all the new growth and opportunity that lies ahead as we work toward creating the greatest and safest place to work that we can!
