Statement of Purpose

The Hampton Roads Diversity and Inclusion Consortium (HRDIC) is a group of representatives from nonprofit, local, state, and federal sectors of the Hampton Roads Region, and the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Their vision is to become an agent of change that will assist employers and others to ensure diversity and inclusion are embedded within the culture of their organizations.

HRDIC believes Diversity embodies all the differences - life and work experiences, perspectives, cultures, race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, abilities, disabilities and other aspects of life - that make us unique individuals.

We believe Inclusion is the act of creating appreciative work ethics and an environments in which all individuals in a group feel comfortable as a distinct part of the complex mainstream culture. When employees feel welcomed, respected, supported, and valued, their performance and efficiency improve. An inclusive and welcoming climate embraces differences and offers respect in words and actions for all people.
