Diversity and Equity

SAGE is strengthened by the diversity of the communities it serves. As the nation's population of older people continues to grow and becomes more diverse, the conversation on LGBT aging becomes more relevant.

SAGE is committed to, and guided by, these principles of diversity and equity:

  • To continually expand our relevance to SAGE's stakeholders;
  • To utilize the insights and contributions of all individuals throughout the organization; diversity creates a larger pool of shared understanding, allowing staff to make better decisions and increase its ability to recognize biases and eliminate their influence.

SAGE applies these principles in providing services; in creating its Board; and in hiring, training and advancing its staff and volunteers, through the following actions:

  • Establish benchmarks for diversity and equity and monitor measurable outcomes;
  • Share these principles of diversity and equity with the public so that the organization remains accountable to them and in so doing demonstrates its commitment as a role model for the LGBT and aging communities and beyond.
