Vitalia North Royalton Elaborates on Their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Category: D&I Series

Author: Lori Robinson, 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 now, going on our second 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 Vitalia North Royalton, DEI goes beyond training and mentoring. It is a way of life. One of my favorite conversations thus far this past year was An Animal Justice Conversation with Kaleigh Miller.

Advocating for animal justice is about recognizing and respecting the rights of animals and acknowledging their importance in our world. It not only benefits animals directly but also contribute to a more compassionate, responsible, and sustainable society, encouraging people to extend their care and consideration beyond human beings. I enjoyed this session because of its discussion of animals outside of the common house pet. I also found Kaleigh’s explanation of animal justice existing and having animals for resources and labor to be interesting.

DEI is not only crucial for ethical and social reasons but also for driving organizational success by creating a positive and inclusive work environment. Embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion is a strategic advantage that benefits individuals, organizations, and society.

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!
