LeadingAge Massachusetts is steadfast in our commitment to creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive aging services community.  As an Association of mission-driven, Not-For-Profit Aging Services Providers we believe that it is our duty to lead the way in building a field where equitable opportunities exist for all to thrive.  We recognize that diversity of thought and experience inspire the innovation, compassion and quality of care that our members strive for.   We know that supporting our members in creating equitable and inclusive communities for those of all lived experiences is not only our moral obligation, it is also essential to the future success of our member organizations and their ability to continue to serve our increasingly diverse aging population.  

We are calling on all members of the LeadingAge Massachusetts community to join us on the path to greater justice.  We ask you to begin, from where you are. To commit yourselves and your organizations to the work of creating communities where all older adults, and those who serve them, can thrive.
