Transforming Workplaces and Communities:
Vision and Mission
The National Diversity Council is the first non-profit organization to bring together the private, public and non-profit sectors to discuss the many dimensions and benefits of a multicultural environment. The success of the Texas Diversity Council, founded by Dennis Kennedy in 2004, served as a catalyst for the National Diversity Council, launched in the fall of 2008. The NDC is a forerunner of community-based, national organizations that champion diversity and inclusion across the country. It is currently made up of state and regional councils.
The vision of the National Diversity Council is to cultivate a nationwide network of affiliated councils to advance diversity and inclusion by transforming our work places and communities into inclusive environments where individuals are valued for their talents and empowered to reach their fullest potential.
The mission of the National Diversity Council is to be both a resource and an advocate for the value of diversity and inclusion. The NDC serves as the umbrella organization to support our statewide and regional affiliates, which foster an understanding of diversity and inclusion as a dynamic strategy for business success and community well-being through various initiatives.
