Diversity Research Team

Committee Charge: The Diversity Research Team serves as the primary point of contact for member inquiries related to diversity, inclusion, and the NACE Statement of Diversity. In addition, the team will work proactively to achieve the following outcomes:

  • - Research and suggest topics related to D&I for consideration in presentations, learning offerings, articles and other NACE media based on the needs and input of the membership.
  • - Identify and inform the membership of best practices, content, and resources for members with respect to recruiting topics that have received increased attention in recent years including the recruiting and placement for persons with disabilities, veterans, and the LGBT community.
  • - Perform an analysis of the Association's own diversity profile and deliver recommends to the Board to address any noted opportunities for improvement.
