Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Community

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Community of the Northern Virginia Technology Council provides guidance and insight to NVTC to share best practices and solutions, address business challenges, engage in transparent conversations, and develop strategies to create a diverse and inclusive tech community in the region. The NVTC DE&I Committee will serve its members as a facilitator for DE&I insight, awareness, guidelines, initiatives, and content. With the unique backgrounds and experiences of NVTC's membership, we have the ability to provide insight with a collegial approach to help create equitable opportunities and measures for the advancement of NOVA businesses moving forward.

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee shares insights including:

  • Creating greater career access and mobility for traditionally underrepresented communities.
  • Curating inclusive cultures where all employees can engage comfortably to help companies thrive in the fiercely competitive global innovation economy.
  • Empowerment of employees through recognition for special talents and inclusive social dynamics that foster a healthy cross-cultural community.
  • Educate work culture on recruitment expansion to create a network for more diverse candidates to drive innovative ideas within the workspace.
  • Facilitate progressive discussion aimed at reconstructing traditional bias social constructs that are counterproductive to a diverse and inclusive work culture.
