Diversity

Print
Share

Roanoke is a small Southern City, nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Yet, we represent a great number of cultures, and connect to countries far beyond our local borders. We are a small city, but a city of vibrant contrast, challenged to adapt and called to celebrate the tapestry of cultures that combine to make us who we are.

Diversity Advisory Council
The success of any organization is contingent upon a workplace where employees are encouraged to serve, appreciate, respect, and value the variety of differences that exist in a shared community. Towards this end, the Diversity Advisory Council was formed of employees who volunteered to develop and implement strategies to embed inclusion into our culture and core values and to serve as inclusion champions for the organization. This council promotes an environment where each individual member of a diverse workforce feels valued; is able to fully develop his or her working potential; and contribute to the organization's success.
