Inclusive Excellence Committee

The Committee on Inclusive Excellence (CIE) began as a working group in 2017 and became an organizational committee in 2018. The CIE works to operationalize inclusive excellence within NORDP, to realize NORDP's goal to "foster a culture of inclusive excellence by actively promoting and supporting diversity, inclusion and equity in all its forms to expand our worldview, enrich our work, and elevate our profession." This committee serves to advise NORDP leadership and committees toward creating and maintaining a welcoming and supportive environment for all NORDP members, partners, and affiliates. To ensure the integration of these values throughout NORDP, the CIE strives for representation on all other NORDP committees and affinity groups. The CIE is actively recruiting new members!
