2018 is a big year for the National Diversity Council as it officially marks 10 years of actively advocating for diversity and inclusion in the workplace. 10 years of discussing the importance of ensuring people from various races, genders, religions, abilities and orientations feel they have access to equal career opportunities. 10 years of being a catalyst for change.
“I cannot begin to fully express the sense of pride I feel when I see how far we have come,” said Dennis Kennedy, Founder and Chair of the National Diversity Council. “To see that so many people have been willing to join me on this journey is proof that there is indeed value in diversity.”
The organization has grown exponentially since its humble beginnings in 2008. Today, the once 5-person team working in a makeshift office has blossomed into a multi-department staff working in a Houston-based headquarters. The company currently has 300 corporate partners, has hosted 600 events and has councils in 18 states. Major milestones include the international expansion of the council’s Women in Leadership Symposium, giving the council a global footprint.
“It has been such a pleasure to witness the growth of this organization,” said Angeles Valenciano, Chief Executive Officer of the National Diversity Council. “I am so proud of the team that has been with us throughout this journey and cannot wait to see all of the accomplishments we will achieve in the future.”
