Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

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.

In 2021, we will host our 3rd annual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion summit. Last year, industry and civic leaders attended our summit, engaged in interactive discussions and shared actionable ideas to affect change.

In addition to our annual summit, we host webinars to provide in-depth information on diversity, equity and inclusion. We welcome all North Texans to take individual responsibility as well as corporate responsibility to be intentional, inclusive and strive for equity.
