What we do
Vision
The vision of the National Diversity Council is to cultivate a nationwide network of affiliated councils to advance diversity and inclusion by transforming our workplaces and communities into inclusive environments where individuals are valued for their talents and empowered to reach their fullest potential.
Founder’s Welcome

Thank you for your interest in the National Diversity Council. In 2004, I walked away from my job to follow my vision of starting the Texas Diversity Council. My hope was to create a statewide organization that would promote diversity & inclusion. I definitely saw the need for an organization that would take a leadership role in championing diversity throughout Texas. Five years later, I found myself heading up the launch of a national organization.

I see a strong need for a diversity council at the national level. Without a doubt, our country needs an organization that can create synergies to foster inclusion through partnerships, advocacy and education. With the increasing changes in our work and marketplace, the need for such an organization is essential. The business case for diversity and inclusion grows stronger as each day passes.

The vision of the National Diversity Council is to establish state and regional councils across the United States. These councils will take a leadership role in promoting diversity and inclusion within our workplaces and communities. Each state council will have its own board of directors, staff and officers that will drive initiatives locally. In fact, local impact is what we want to achieve. Our purpose is to create local dialogue on the value of diversity and inclusion. Ultimately, our goal is to advocate for diversity as a business imperative to increase our chances to innovate and create sustainable wealth for our communities.

For the National Diversity Council to succeed, we need the involvement of organizations and individuals that believe in diversity as a competitive advantage. I invite you to be part of this initiative and to join our organization today.

Cordially,

Dennis Kennedy
