Grantmakers In Aging strives to center our mission around older people who have been most affected by systems of oppression and deprived of the resources required to age well.
We are working to operationalize Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion within our organizational and board culture and throughout our programs.
GIA recognizes that a sustained commitment of time and resources is required, and that we have much to learn and unlearn in this process. We ask that GIA members and stakeholders hold us accountable and offer us grace as we learn from our efforts and adjust our approach where needed. We, in turn, will strive to be a model for others by openly sharing our process with our community.
We hold diversity, equity, and inclusion as core philanthropic values, and we see aging as core to diversity, equity, & inclusion efforts.
