Longevity + Inclusion Alliance Fellows Program

A Leader’s Journey of Inclusion

The Longevity + Inclusion Alliance is borne of out of the undeniable reality that longevity is inextricably tied to and greatly dependent upon inclusion. Creating equity in aging, in part, rests in the hands of those with the power to make change and the courage to take action.

The L+I Alliance Fellow Program exists to ensure leaders, organizations, and business partners within the field of aging services are culturally competent, courageous, and intentional in their journeys of diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, accessibility, and justice.

Program Overview

The L+I Alliance Fellows Program convenes committed, earnest professionals to begin or continue their own unique journey of inclusion. Cohorts include up to 12 individuals; participants are all current or emerging leaders.

This one-of-a-kind, six-month program includes five virtual sessions of 4 hours each.  The program includes an immersive, in-person 2-day retreat.

All cohorts are created with a focus on diversity of lived experience and identity.


Participants will journey along five paths of intentionality.  Each gives space for introspection and exposure to the diverse world around us.

  • Session #1: Discovery & Reflection
  • Session #2: Each One, Teach One

  • Session #3: Wisdom & Peace

  • Session #4: Creating Opportunities

  • Session #5: Courageous Leadership
