Strengthening a Culture of Equity & Inclusion

Williamsburg Landing Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEI&B)

Diversity at Williamsburg Landing means the active presence and participation of persons with a variety of social, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, various religious and spiritual orientations as well as race, gender, sexual orientation, age, or differing ability. Our approach is to emphasize and facilitate a genuine sense of wellbeing within our community by deepening our connections with one another.

Our DEI&B (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging) Council consists of 21 members from the Williamsburg Landing community including Residents, Employees, Board Members and Leadership.

Williamsburg Landing’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB) Plan


Williamsburg Landing’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging Plan reflects our commitment to promoting awareness of and respect for the diversity of our residents, staff, family members and other community stakeholders. The Plan includes specific objectives that affirm Williamsburg Landing’s commitment to being a welcoming, inclusive community: one that holds people in high esteem, considers all aspects of diversity in its approach to care and services, and seeks to improve relations among all people. The Plan recognizes Williamsburg Landing’s historic lack of diversity in its resident population and seeks intentionally to attract new residents who reflect a diversity of age, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religion, spiritual beliefs, socioeconomic status, race, color, national origin, language and differing abilities. The Plan sponsors focused action in multiple areas of our organization’s life, including but not limited to resident life enrichment, staff activities/training, marketing and community relations, philanthropy, and Board/Leadership recruitment.


This plan supports the objectives in Williamsburg Landing’s Strategic Plan specifically in that it addresses:

  1. Increasing diversity among residents, employees, leaders, and Board members
  2. Enhancing the greater community’s perception of Williamsburg Landing as a welcoming environment
  3. Establishing internal accountability for change to include formal reporting of diversity statistics
  4. Expanding social responsibility through support of external organizations that serve seniors
