American Senior Communities is a diverse collection of people, truly reflective of the communities we serve. We don’t just talk about our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion; we live it every single day through our culture of C.A.R.E. Only through Compassion, Accountability, Relationships and Excellence can we create living and work environments that are enriching, innovative and equitable.
“Our goal here at American Senior Communities is to create an environment where people of different backgrounds can bring their authentic selves to where they live or work.”

Executive Director, Brownsburg Meadows
The stories, recipes and values passed down from his grandparents come to mind when ASC’s Tim Carter, Executive Director of Brownsburg Meadows, thinks about Black History Month. At ASC, we are proud to celebrate the achievements and history of African Americans both today and in our past.
HR Consultant, ASC Home Office
March is Women’s History Month, and ASC’s HR Consultant Tonya Gonzales finds great meaning in this celebration. “It is a reminder to me of the accomplishments I have made, and it’s a chance to reflect on the women who lead the way for change.”
Talent Acquisition, ASC Home Office
President George H.W. Bush issued a proclamation in 1991, designating March as Irish-American Heritage Month. In March we not only recognize St. Patrick’s Day, but we celebrate Irish culture and its influence in America. ASC’s Ashley McNally, a Talent Acquisition Sourcer, appreciates her red hair, passed down from her Irish ancestors, and has a love of Irish music.
American Senior Communities’ commitment to diversity and inclusion including the suppliers and vendors we work with. We actively seek partnerships with minority, women, veteran and disability-owned companies. ASC recognizes that building and maintaining a community of diverse suppliers provides access to the talent, innovations, and resources we need and which strengthens us.
With our aging population, it is now more important than ever as senior care providers to provide well-defined career pathways, especially among minority and underrepresented workers. American Senior Communities invests heavily in career development for current employees. We reach out into our communities to remove barriers for prospective team members who may have fewer opportunities available to them. We partner with several educational systems, providing mentorship and resources to students wanting to join the honorable profession of senior care.
