From Gary Anderson, President and CEO of Lutheran Senior Services
Lutheran Senior Services is celebrating Black History Month by highlighting past and present leaders of the black community. We pause to commemorate their achievements as well as the impact that it has had in our history and future. Written by our own team members across LSS, we’ll experience Black History Month through their eyes.
I hope reading these stories and reflecting on the richness God’s diversity offers creation, will allow us all to see the fullness of our future. We must actively work to create meaningful change.
LSS is committed to creating a People First culture; one in which all employees feel a sense of belonging. Diversity, equity, and inclusion —referred to as DEI — is at the heart of our mission. Jesus says in John 13:34, “Now I am giving you a new commandment: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.”
