Welcoming Diversity

Diversity and Inclusion at Kendal


Kendal’s commitment to diversity flows from our Quaker roots and published Values and Practices. We believe that a spirit of inclusion and a culture of diversity enrich and strengthen our communities, people and services.

Beyond a verbal commitment, diversity is benchmarked — measured — throughout the organization. We know we have progress to make, as does all of society, but we welcome diversity in these and other ways:

  • Welcoming residents and their families from all cultures and backgrounds.
  • Creating and maintaining a workplace where diversity and inclusion are practiced.
  • Forming outreach relationships with local, diverse groups.
  • Promoting diversity initiatives at both the corporate and affiliate levels.

This short video captures Kendal’s support for diversity, and where we strive to improve.
