NOVA DEI Connects

Working for equity and inclusion within our regional workforce

Greater Washington Apprentice Network

Bringing opportunity to our regional workforce

The NOVA DEI Connects is an inclusive and collaborative community of members who seek to share, learn, and implement best practices in diversity, equity and inclusion in their employee culture, talent development, and employee recruiting and retention. NOVA DEI Connects welcomes all members interested in advancing their knowledge and understanding of successful DEI strategies to join us and each other in this opportunity.

Each month the network will meet via Zoom to speak with a leader who will share their DEI best practices and programs. All are welcome.
