ALCA’s Inclusion Diversity Equality & Accessibility efforts ALCA’s founding members, all women, created an organization focused on helping older adults age well and with dignity.
The ALCA Board works to continue to build on the efforts of our founding members, which has always upheld non-discrimination in our membership and in serving clients.
We are well aware of the lack of diversity in our membership and we have taken concrete steps to begin working on changing this in a respectful and thoughtful manner.
Task Force – In March 2020 ALCA mobilized membership and identified outstanding members who could help address and work towards adding diversity in our leadership and membership. ALCA’s 2020 Board President formed two task forces on Membership Diversity and Servicing Diverse Populations.
Videos – The videos here will begin to show the diverse faces of ALCA’s membership, with an eye towards increasing this. We hope you’ll gain inspiration and affinity with the members we feature here.
