Diversity Council of the Carolinas
The Diversity Council of the Carolinas (DCC) was formed as a Steering Committee in 1992, following a seminar on diversity in the workplace. The National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ) and the United Way of Central Carolinas, Inc. sponsored its beginnings. The Council's initial purpose was to be a forum to discuss issues of diversity in the workplace and share constructive ideas for dealing with this complex subject. An initial membership of approximately 40 representatives from local businesses, industries and other agencies elected a steering committee to draft its Mission Statement and carve out a meaningful program. The Council received its 501c3 certification in 1994.
The focus of the DCC today continues to be the workplace, the place where diverse individuals come together to do business, offer services, create goods and capital, educate and govern, and to provide the energy and initiative that drive the economy of our region. Diversity initiatives in the workplace make our businesses stronger, our community more inclusive, and increase the capacity of all individuals to contribute. By encouraging individuals (and through them, organizations and institutions) to value and strengthen diversity, our community as a whole is strengthened and its citizenry valued.
