Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Sustainability, Connectivity, Adaptability

SUSTAINABILITY: Centers around preserving our world’s resources with consideration to those who come after us. Sustainable development respects climate and environment, rather than striving to overcome it. Communities that are loved and cared for by successive generations are inherently more sustainable than places that quickly become obsolete.

CONNECTIVITY: Communities connect in many ways, Transportation, Technology and Communication. The physical manifestation of connectivity in neighborhoods—streets that intersect with each other rather than ending in a cul-de-sac—expands to a world view. Communities can be linked through innovative transportation such as autonomous vehicles or connected through communication and the sharing of ideas.

ADAPTABILITY: Our world is changing rapidly. Adaptable communities can withstand, adjust and recover from adversity. The 2020 COVID Pandemic is an example of how individuals and communities must be prepared to adapt as the world changes. Preparing for such change is vital to resiliency.

Our Adaptability programming brings thought leaders together to, learn from each other, from various communities and encourage new ideas and innovation.

As we age, access to quality healthcare becomes more important. In addition to its availability, convenient locations, telemedicine and accessibility of buildings and transportation are issues that can impede anyone's ability to maintain their health throughout their lifespan.
Combining access to healthcare while maintaining a healthy lifestyle that is active is the main focus of Aging With Grace.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
