The mission of the National Diversity Council and the Michigan Diversity Council is to be both a resource and an advocate for the value of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB). The NDC serves as the umbrella organization to support our statewide and regional affiliates, which foster an understanding of DEIB as a dynamic strategy for success and community well-being through various initiatives.

The vision of the National Diversity Council and the Michigan Diversity Council is to advance diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging by transforming our workplaces and communities into inclusive environments where individuals are valued for their talents and empowered to reach their fullest potential.

The National Diversity Council is the first non-profit organization to bring together the private, public and non-profit sectors to discuss the many dimensions and benefits of a multicultural environment. Since the launch in 2008, the NDC is a forerunner of community-based, national organizations that champion diversity, equity and inclusion across the country. It is currently made up of state and regional councils.
