      The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) has a long-standing tradition of promoting diversity and inclusiveness as part of its core mission—facilitating the employment of the college educated. It is our steadfast belief that organizations of all types, whether institutions of higher learning or employers operating in the private or public sectors, benefit by welcoming individuals of different genders, ethnicities, religious beliefs, and/or sexual orientations/identifications into their communities.

      “Inclusive excellence is a state of being achieved through consistent attention to inclusive practices that afford a broad diversity of students and employees the opportunity to be successful,” Dr. Alma Clayton-Pedersen, Emeritus Consulting Group, LLC
