Supporting a Spirit of Inclusion
Kendal strives to create and support an environment for community members, board, staff, and volunteers that is welcoming to all cultures, backgrounds, and differences — an environment that promotes mutual respect, acceptance, cooperation, and teamwork. Our commitment to diversity flows from Kendal’s Quaker roots and our published Values and Practices. We believe that a spirit of inclusion and a culture of diversity enrich and strengthen our communities, people, and services.
Over the past decade, the Kendal System of retirement communities has undertaken a concerted effort to increase diversity among community members, staff, volunteers, and board members.

The four-minute video, “Welcoming Diversity: Supporting a Spirit of Inclusion,” features Kendal residents, staff, and board members.
