Kendal at Granville strives to create and support an environment for community members, board, staff and volunteers that is welcoming to all cultures, backgrounds and differences—an environment that promotes mutual respect, acceptance, cooperation, and teamwork. Our commitment to diversity flows from Kendal’s Quaker roots and our published Values & Practices. We believe that a spirit of inclusion and a culture of diversity enrich and strengthen our communities, people, and services.

The Kendal Corporation and Kendal affiliates operate on the principle of equal opportunity for all qualified persons regardless of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, disability, or any other characteristic protected by law in evaluating any person for employment, training, compensation, promotion, or termination. We operate in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Over the past decade, the Kendal System of retirement communities has undertaken a concerted effort to increase diversity among community members, staff, volunteers and board members. View a video in support of Kendal’s diversity and inclusion  initiatives.
