The Hampton Roads Diversity and Inclusion Consortium (HRDIC) and the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities (VCIC) have entered into a formal partnership, with VCIC serving as the fiscal agent for HRDIC.
The Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities works with schools, businesses, and communities to achieve success by addressing prejudices, in all forms, in order to improve academic achievement, increase workplace productivity, and enhance local trust. Through workshops, retreats, and customized programs that raise knowledge, motivation, and skills, VCIC develops leaders who work together to achieve success throughout the Commonwealth.
In 2011, the Hampton Roads Diversity & Inclusion Consortium (known formerly as the Regional Roundtable) was created to provide organizations with opportunities to share ideas, resources and lessons learned in our continued efforts to embrace diversity and build inclusive workplaces where diversity of thought and perspective becomes second nature and deeply ingrained in how we do business.
The mission of the associated local, state, federal and private sector organizations is to create a regional learning exchange for employers and employees to share ideas, initiatives and best practices on diversity and inclusion efforts, while bringing unique insight and perspectives.
