It was established in 1998, and has 17 members,including healthcare organizations, schools, universities, colleges, and businesses. Membership dues are currently $3450 per year.
NEPDEC members receive approximately 10 programs a year, at an average cost of $200 each, and a day of training and/or consultation provided by the Director, Dr. Linda Trompetter.
Our offices are located at the Advocacy Alliance in Scranton, and appointments with the director can be made by calling 570-814-4940.
NEPDEC’s mission is to create a more inclusive, dynamic culture in our region and to prepare for increasingly complex and diverse communities and workplaces. To achieve these goals, we:
- provide educational programming and consultation,
- support members’ diversity initiatives,
- organize networking and social events for relaxed interaction and sharing, and
- build alliances among historically isolated groups.
Through cooperation, we address regional diversity issues with greater impact and economies of scale.
