Dear NACE colleagues:
Earlier this week, we shared our commitment to fighting racial injustice and furthering diversity, equity, and inclusion. (See June 2 message, below.) Our message included a promise that NACE would work to advance change and support members’ in their efforts.
While there is much work ahead of us, to meet the immediate needs of our members, we’d like to invite you to take part in the following:
Of course, there is much more to come. We will need your voice and participation as we work to advance change; further diversity, equity, and inclusion; and fight racial injustice.
We are all in this together. As a profession, we are well positioned to make a real impact on all of these issues and can exact positive change for a better future for us all. We stand together. #WeAreNACE.

2019-20 NACE President
Dear NACE Community,
There is so much hurt and pain being felt throughout our country right now. In these unprecedented times, it is important that our NACE community knows that we stand together...together with our staff, colleagues, family, and friends.
Injustice, inequity, and racism are not okay.
We are all impacted by what is happening and all have a role to play in fixing these systemic problems. As an association, we have to be committed to addressing the issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion together. We have a distinct role to play on an individual level, but also as a community of professionals. NACE is dedicated to workforce development and the employment of the college educated; we can make a tangible impact on these societal issues. Let’s take this moment to do so.
Together we can and will create solutions that make a difference. We need and will make real change. And we must.
Inclusion is a core value for the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which fosters and supports individual and organizational diversity and inclusion to advance equity in all facets of the association.
