Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

Our Commitment to DEI

At NGA, we wholeheartedly embrace the principles of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). We firmly believe that fostering a diverse and inclusive community is not only a moral imperative but also a strategic advantage for the regional industry we represent.

Our commitment to DEI is rooted in the understanding that only a collaboration of diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds can help us support such a diverse industry. By championing an environment where every individual feels valued, respected, and included, we strive to create a community that reflects the rich tapestry of our region.

How We Implement DEI Internally

At the core of our DEI initiatives is a comprehensive and ongoing commitment to internal practices that reflect our values. Here's how we bring our commitment to life within our organization:

  • Inclusive Policies and Practices: We have established and consistently review our internal policies and practices to ensure fair representation, equal opportunities, and a supportive workplace for everyone.
  • Training: From day one, our team members engage in continuous learning opportunities that promote awareness, understanding, and sensitivity to various cultures, perspectives, and experiences.
  • Leadership Accountability: Developing a diverse, inclusive staff is a mandate from our Board of Directors and leadership. But respect and inclusivity goes both ways. We also hold our leadership accountable. This involves fostering an inclusive leadership culture that trickles down throughout the organization.
  • Recruitment and Retention: We actively seek diverse talent through unbiased recruitment practices and are dedicated to retaining a workforce that reflects the diversity of our region.

How We Support Our Members

Our commitment to DEI extends beyond our internal practices; we actively support our members in fostering inclusive environments within their own organizations. Here's how we collaborate with our members to advance DEI through education:

  • Knowledge Sharing and Resources: Our Board of Directors authorized the formation of the DEI and Workforce Development Committee. Through this committee and other avenues, we provide our members with access to DEI resources, best practices, and expert insights, empowering them to integrate diversity and inclusion into their business strategies.
  • Educational Initiatives: Through conferences, workshops, and training, we facilitate educational initiatives that equip our members with the knowledge and tools necessary to cultivate a diverse and inclusive workplace culture.
  • Networking Opportunities: Through curated events, forums, and networking sessions, we create spaces where our members can connect, share experiences, and learn from one another in the journey toward fostering diverse and inclusive workplaces.
  • Safety and Inclusivity Moments: NGA starts each official NGA meeting with a brief Safety moment and Inclusivity moment, where participants can share a recent experience that they learned from to improve their practices

By championing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, NGA aims to set the standard for a more inclusive and vibrant industry. Join us in creating a future where every voice is heard, every perspective is valued, and every individual can thrive. Together, we build a stronger, more resilient community for all.
