The Arthritis Foundation empowers all people with arthritis to live their best life. We fight for a better quality of life for every person. We embrace diversity, equity and inclusion for all communities without bias or barriers based on age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, economic condition, or religious affiliation.

  • We welcome unique perspectives and experiences to advance our mission and progress our fight for access to quality healthcare for every person.
  • We value the unique qualities and experiences of all individuals, and we’re passionate about expanding our practice of creating an inclusive environment that promotes and values diversity.
  • We believe that everyone who cares about our cause — every donor, volunteer, advocate, patient and employee — should have equal access to our programs, services, initiatives and opportunities. 
  • We commit to embracing a diverse and inclusive community that represents, reflects, and values the unique characteristics, experiences, and viewpoints of our employees, volunteers, donors, partners, and the communities we serve.

Together, we champion a diverse and inclusive culture that encourages, supports and celebrates the voices and perspectives of all.

Stay in the Know. Live in the Yes.
