Welcome to the Diversity Web Site

Diversity is about acknowledging differences and adapting practices to create an inclusive environment in which diverse skills, perspectives and backgrounds are valued. It is about understanding the individual differences among our members that arise from a broad range of backgrounds and lifestyles, and recognizing the value of using those different perspectives and ideas to enhance the quality and outcomes of our mission.

Our diversity is shaped by a variety of characteristics including age, ethnicity, gender, disability, language, religious beliefs, life stages, education, career, sexual orientation, personality and marital status. Additionally, diversity means accepting, welcoming and valuing the differences inherent in every individual and recognizing the contribution that a diverse membership can make to our organizational effectiveness and operational performance.

Elected leaders and staff officers must implement strategies specific to the needs of their local units. Plans must be consistent with the requirements set forth in the NACO's Strategic Plan and Diversity Statement. Our team stands ready to provide any assistance requested in support of your local program.
