PVM's Statement and Commitment on Diversity and Inclusion

Dear Colleagues, Stakeholders and Friends,

We all have so much more to do!

We have all been deeply saddened and concerned by the tragic events of the past two weeks. They have sharply reinforced the continued need for improved understanding, appreciation, respect, compassion, forgiveness and love amongst all peoples. Although progress has been steadily made through the decades, we still have so much more to do.

Presbyterian Villages of Michigan (PVM) has long recognized the importance of the vital and difficult work ahead of us. In January 2013, the PVM Board of Directors formally adopted the below statement of organizational commitment. However, we still have so much more to do.

Diversity and Inclusion

Statement of Organizational Commitment

Approved by the PVM Board of Directors: January 31, 2013

“People may not remember exactly what you did, or what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel.”
-Maya Angelou

Diversity and Inclusion Statement of Organizational Commitment: Presbyterian Villages of Michigan (PVM) will intentionally value and build upon a diverse and inclusive resident, client, employee, board, business partner, volunteer, donor, community, and other stakeholder population. In doing so, all individuals will enjoy environments where:

  • Respect and consistent treatment is the experience of all,
  • Enhanced Diversity and Inclusion will be achieved through conscious, intentional and disciplined efforts, and;
  • PVM’s mission, vision, and beliefs/values are reflected in all daily activities.

Furthermore, PVM actively works to foster an inclusive environment that recognizes the contributions and supports the advancement of all, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability because an inclusive environment can enhance the comprehensive quality of life for everyone, strengthen organizational success, improve community relations, and positively affect the society.

This commitment serves as a major guide to PVM’s decisions, actions and behaviors. PVM promotes the value of diversity and inclusion throughout the year in many ways, but we still have so much more to do.

Please join with me in actively pursuing opportunities for justice, healing, reconciliation and peace. Individually and together, we all have so much more to do!

With gratitude, respect and hope for all,

Roger L. Myers
President & CEO
Presbyterian Villages of Michigan
