Hudson Grande Senior Living Explores the Importance of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Category: D&I Series

Author: Austin Marsh, Business Office 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 for the past 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 Hudson Grande Senior Living, DEI goes beyond training and mentoring. It is a way of life. One of my favorite conversations thus far have been the Mental Health DEI Series featuring Sandy McGatha.   

Mental health has held a negative stigma for many years, and the age group we currently serve is not aware of how their mental health can affect their physical health, and their every day lives. Bringing the various subjects to light: depressions, anxiety, grief, and self-care give a glimpse into what mental health is, and how you can begin the journey to better your personal outlook on life. Sandy is so knowledge able on the subject and is an asset to the company not only regarding the residents, but for our staff as well.

Our DEI series discusses hot topics like gender, race, and various historical events. They are a platform for our residents, who have a hunger for knowledge, to broaden their skills and continue to learn throughout their lifetime.

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!
