At Lutheran SeniorLife, one way that we deliver on our promise to be a great workplace is to empower our employees to create a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace.

The Importance of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Lutheran SeniorLife

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging align with the core values of Lutheran SeniorLife.  We foster and support individual and organizational diversity, and inclusion within all facets of the organization.  Lutheran SeniorLife embraces and derives significance from a variety of views that diverse organizations, individual and employees bring.  We create a supportive learning environment to foster open communications of diverse perspectives and realities to better serve all individuals and support all employees at Lutheran SeniorLife.  Through the decades, fairness and integrity continue to guide both our behavior and our organizational policies and practices.  We believe that when each of us contributes our best, we uphold Lutheran SeniorLife’s values and support our ability to grow our organization and individual and collective talents.

At Lutheran SeniorLife, our values have guided us for over 100 years and will continue to guide us into the future.  We seek common ground, and to look beyond our own needs and choose the greater good.  Today, those values lead us in our commitment to being an employer that embraces all individuals and ideas, and places fairness, respect and service as a core value.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Treating others with dignity and respect is at the heart of Lutheran SeniorLife’s values, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is a continuing commitment.  Lutheran SeniorLife is dedicated to fostering inclusive and equitable practices in our workplace and throughout all programs and services.  We celebrate and support the unique qualities of employees and all individuals who we serve.

Lutheran SeniorLife invests in employees as individuals and celebrates what makes us all unique.  Being from different cultural backgrounds is valued and welcome.


A key goal is to gain insight and perspective at the individual level on our culture and service quality.  Lutheran SeniorLife is committed to gain input from our employees, Human Resources and our leaders as we work together to create openness along our journey to be better.

We are all on our diversity, equity and inclusion journey together.  We know that by committing to DEI, we will develop a greater understanding of our ministerial organization and be able to think more creatively to address the organizational challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
