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 Carriage Court 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 Poverty Awareness Conversation with Professor William Elliott III.
I enjoy learning more about DEI through this series because it encourages me to challenge my predispositions regarding how I view individuals, their abilities, and achievements. It helps me to become more open minded and to step out of my shoes and into the shoes of others. Overall, the growth achieved through DEI lessons is very fulfilling.
DEI is a very important thing to be integrated into our community and it helps to foster a creative, fresh perspective and understanding of peoples of different races, abilities, ages, genders, religions, sexual orientations, or other diverse backgrounds. Practicing and becoming educated through DEI helps to further establish a workplace and home-like environment that makes everybody feel welcomed and more comfortable.
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!
