On behalf of the PLTC DEI Committee, we would like to share PLTC’s March Diversity Calendar
March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, Ethnic Equality Month, Gender Equality Month, National Women’s History Month, and Social Work Month.
On March 13, 2020, a national emergency was declared in the United States due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As we move through this challenging year, we are reminded to honor the richness of the long-term care experience, including how aging and developmental disabilities intersect. We celebrate our colleagues and one another, especially our social workers, and staff members of all genders as well as diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
