North Texas is home to a high-growth and diverse population. The North Texas Commission is committed to supporting equity and inclusion for all North Texans. We are engaged in advocating for nondiscriminatory legislation at the state and federal levels, convene leaders throughout the region to share best practices and provide educational resources for North Texans who want to learn and be more inclusive in their workplaces and communities.

​ 

The North Texas Commission is excited to announce its highly-anticipated 2021 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programming. Entitled Inspiring Inclusion, the 2021 programming will be offered virtually with a series of programs featuring C-level leaders discussing their personal journeys and best practices to improve inclusion in the workplace and the community.

 

Our goal is to provide hope and inspiration for North Texans and offer solutions in a rapidly changing world. The North Texas Commission is fortunate to have members who are innovative and have a history of improving corporate cultures to be more inclusive. We recognize that racial and LGBTQ+ diversity at all levels of business, especially at leadership levels, is good for business and our country.

 

We will amplify these messages and encourage actions as we have done in previous years with our DEI summits. The sessions will be free for NTC members and will be available for group training and for individuals who want to be inspired and learn more about affecting change. Inspiring Inclusion will launch in Spring 2021. Stay tuned for dates and details for registering. Please reach out to Charlene Stark at charlene@ntc-dfw.org to explore sponsorship support and any other questions.
