The Township Senior Living Elaborates on Their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Category: D&I Series

Author: Denise Wilkinson, Interim Executive Director

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 The Township 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 Deaf Awareness Conversation with Melissa Dove & Mary Pickering. This online conversation was made more accessible with the addition of the signers. I learned a lot about the deaf community and was inspired to think about accessibility in a new way. 

Embracing diversity ensures that people from different backgrounds, races, genders, sexual orientations, religions, and abilities are treated with equal respect and opportunities. Inclusive environments foster a sense of belonging and promote social cohesion, reducing discrimination and prejudice. Emphasizing diversity and inclusion aligns with the principles of social responsibility, as companies actively contribute to creating a fair and equitable society. This is just one of the reasons why DEI is so important to our company and society.

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!
