Diversity & Inclusion
A note from our CEO Larry Hausner
Our mission is “to prevent and cure diabetes and improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.” To that end, we've released an ambitious Association 2012–2015 Strategic Plan to help us accomplish this.
We need to include a variety of thoughts and opinions—from the researchers we fund, to the people affected by or at risk for diabetes, to the volunteers and staff who make the American Diabetes Association function, and to the corporations and individuals who support us.
All our communities must have a seat at the table and a voice that is heard. A strong diversity and inclusion program, therefore, is central to our mission, and I have implemented such a program for the Association.
I take it as my personal responsibility to ensure this program succeeds and to help us STOP DIABETES®.
