Diversity Features

As part of our effort to recognize those who celebrate diversity throughout the year, OSHR will periodically feature a university’s or agency’s Diversity and Inclusion Team or Department with their statement on how they collectively honor diversity.

NC Department of Commerce

The NC Department of Commerce maintains Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) as a top organizational priority. Secretary Sanders established the DEI Office, the first such office to exist in the Department’s history and hired its first Chief DEI Officer to lead Commerce in viewing everything through an equity lens to dismantle barriers and expand quality job and business opportunities for all North Carolinians. The team is laser focused on embedding DEI and environmental justice in all that it does!
