Institute on Aging Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
The UW–Madison Institute on Aging embraces diversity as a source of strength, creativity, and innovation in carrying out its broad mission. As a place of work, we value the contributions of each employee, respecting individual identities, cultural backgrounds, abilities, and opinions. As a research institute, we are committed to advancing knowledge about health and well-being in adulthood and later life with awareness of differences defined by demographic factors (age, gender, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status) and wide-ranging psychological and social factors. As a forum for outreach, application, and public health education, we welcome the participation of all who want to learn about the work that we do. Our ultimate goal is to be inclusive.
