Diversity is a core value of LeadingAge California. We are passionate about building and sustaining an inclusive and equitable working and learning industry for the workforce in housing, care and services for older adults. LeadingAge California is the State's leading advocate for quality, non-profit senior care and services. 

Our nearly 700 members across the state include providers of affordable senior housing, home and community-based services, residential care facilities for the elderly (assisted living), life plan communities and skilled nursing care. We believe every member on the team enriches our diversity by exposing us to a broad range of ways to understand and engage with the world, identify challenges, and to discover, design and deliver solutions for our members.

When people feel respected, heard and included, they are unencumbered to innovate and succeed. Together, we are creating welcoming communities, where we uplift historically marginalized identities and people who are living and working in housing, care and services for older adults.”
