Diversity • Equity • Inclusion

CJE SeniorLife values each of its over 600 full- and part-time workers from diverse backgrounds as well as the more than 20,000 diverse older adults and their families that we help annually.

In doing this we recognize that everyone plays an important part in making up who CJE SeniorLife is. Rooted in Jewish communal values, CJE’s mission is to enhance quality of life and facilitate independence of older adults through our own values: Respect, Advocacy, Compassion, Intention, Innovation and Accountability.

Throughout the year, we recognize, value and embrace the diversity in who we are and who we serve. We also recognize, value and embrace others outside of CJE that have contributed to the greater good and represent the values CJE holds dear.

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month!

This June marks the 52nd anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in which hundreds of activists fought for the rights of LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and more!) people. Pride Month honors this history, the LGBTQ+ rights movement and many great strides in civil rights progress, while also acknowledging how far we have yet to go. Pride Month is often celebrated with parades and parties, marches and demonstrations, and cultural and arts events.

CJE SeniorLife’s values: respect, advocacy, compassion, intention, innovation, and accountability, are six principles integral to cultivating an environment in which everyone feels safe and valued exactly as they are. These values are rooted in humility and a growth mindset: we can always learn more and continue to change the world for the better through our actions!
