Culture & Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Statement

Racism, inequality, and social injustice must end.

Our promise at Sequoia Living is to always be a safe place for people to be who they are.

Our organization has long lived the values of inclusion. We will continue to listen, learn, and work together to end the racism that has devastating effects on society as well as the people we see each day in our communities and service locations. Black Lives Matter—they are valued, they enrich us, they are family, they are friends, they are part of our communities, they make us better.

Sequoia Living’s mission is to advance healthy aging for people of all cultures, races, ethnicities, genders, abilities, faiths, identities, backgrounds, and walks of life. While we may be a small voice in a very big conversation, we will step up, show up, and speak up.

We denounce racism. To our coworkers, residents, customers, business partners, and communities of color—we see you, we hear you, and we stand with you.


We are committed to the health and safety of our staff and residents. Because of this staff may be required to undergo pre-employment drug testing, background screening, physical screening, TB tests, and Covid-19 tests. In addition, we strongly prefer that all staff receive annual vaccinations against communicable illnesses, including, but not limited to flu and Covid-19.
