    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/consultation,
    * support member’s 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.
