Diversity Outreach
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size


“In a real sense all life is inter-related. All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.”     

- Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

At the Alzheimer's Association, diversity is imperative and integral to our mission. It is vital to what we do, and is a promise we make to those we serve. Our team of dedicated professionals understands that valuing diversity and inclusiveness is critical to the success of our mission.

We seek to be inclusive of the more than half million people in Illinois affected by the disease, including the 210,000 people living with Alzheimer's. The Alzheimer's Association views diversity broadly and includes considerations such as, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, gender, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, region, national origin, religion, language and disability.
