Diversity + Inclusion in Tech

Diversity + Inclusion in the workplace drives innovation and improves the bottom line - when organizations actively create and implement D+I initiatives they are able to highlight and promote the different viewpoints, strengths, experiences, and talents of their entire team.

NC TECH is committed to providing opportunities for discussion, learning, and collaboration on Diversity + Inclusion topics and strategies to our members and beyond.  Throughout the year you can participate in events, utilize resources found here, and engage with our Diversity + Inclusion network.
