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.
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. Below are links to five hours of DEI programs. The sessions are free for NTC members and are available for group training and for individuals who want to be inspired and learn more about affecting change.
Recently, Dr. Ray Perryman shared research on the economic impact of nondiscriminatory policies.
