Greetings from the Founder

Dennis Kennedy

Dennis KennedyAs the founder of the National Diversity Council, I would like to welcome you to the fourth quarter edition of the 2015 NDC Carolinas Diversity Council Newsletter. We are very excited about the upcoming year and the events we have planned for our community.

Community Spotlight: New Study on School Diversity

Wake County and Charlotte-Mecklenburg will be part of a new study on why some school systems are able to maintain economic diversity and others have “effectively resegregated in recent decades.” This study couldn’t have come at a better time - fewer Wake County students are being bused to make schools more economically diverse, contributing to a doubling of the number of high-poverty and racially isolated schools.

Post Event Communication - Diversity Best Practices Meeting

On Thursday, August 18th, the NDC Carolinas Inaugural Diversity Best Practices Meeting was held at Rho, Inc. Representatives of various companies from around the Raleigh area were in attendance to discuss diversity and inclusion best practices utilized within their company.

Rallying for Inclusion for all Generations

A recent SAFE survey shared that almost 30 percent of students in the United States are involved in bullying on a regular basis. The most common type is verbal bullying, which includes derogatory terms based on an individual’s race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc. This can make one wonder how the next generation will survive in the workforce.
