The Office of Diversity and Equity was established in June 2020 with a mission to promote an inclusive and fair work environment and build a culture and community where employees and residents are respected, valued, and understood for their own identities.
The office will serve as a catalyst for change among underrepresented groups and ensure services, policies, and procedures within New Hanover County Government promote access, equity, and inclusion. Beyond internal priorities for the office, it will also engage in community outreach, furthering New Hanover County's commitment to these shared values and promotion of diversity, inclusion, fairness, and respect county-wide.
During this kickoff session of Changemakers, join us as we explore the history of race relations in NHC. Listen to the amazing stories of people who overcame challenges, helping change lives and our community.
