MISSION

The National Diversity Coalition (NDC) mission is to empower and influence our nation’s minority communities at every level of government and within the business community.


FUNCTION

We advocate before governmental bodies, including the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Federal Transportation Commission (FTC), Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and all of the federal financial regulators, such as Treasury, Federal Reserve, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Consumer Federal Protection Bureau (CFPB), Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and Security and Exchange Commission (SEC). 


LEADERSHIP

NDC’s leadership consist of our nation’s various faith & community-based organizations including African-American, Asian and Latino evangelical churches, leadership from major minority business’s such as the Los Angeles Latino Chamber of Commerce, as well as, a diverse group of minority-led regional and national nonprofits. 


PARTNERSHIP

NDC’s member organizations are representative of a significant constituency, strongly advocating for the underserved. However, we cannot achieve substantial social impact without corporate partners. These strategic partnerships with public and private sectors have resulted in policy changes and/or have increased financial support directed at community programming. These programs support a vast array of areas such as homeownership, financial literacy education for youth and adults, digital and broadband literacy, and affordable housing and healthcare to name a few. In addition, they provide access to resources that increase quality of life and improve supplier diversity programs, the importance of arts education in creating thriving communities and economies, K12 education, and several other areas that address various social determinants key to equitable treatment for all individuals, regardless of socio-economic status. 


GOALS

As we aggressively seek a brighter economic future for America’s historically underserved populations, our goal through advocacy work and policy changes, more corporate entities will be held to a greater standard of social responsibility in helping to reduce income and wealth inequality.

To accomplish our goal NDC meets with multi-­‐billion dollar companies seeking acquisitions, and propose substantial public interest provisions via an increase in corporate philanthropy. We positively advocate for the social responsibility, which benefits corporate strategic reinvestments in communities relative to assets, deposits, revenue, and pretax profits. Thus our partnership results in a collaboration of social responsibility and increased public interest in marginalized communities of color.


ACCOMPLISHMENTS

A few of NDC’s key accomplishments with corporations in public interest provisions include, but not limited to:

• Diversity in corporate governance, executive leadership, and employment.

• Diversity and access to procurement.

• Establish and/or increase marketing, education, and outreach to minority communities.

• Increase in philanthropy and community reinvestment

• Provision of program or service to low income or minority communities.

  

MEMBERSHIP
NDC is seeking to enlist member organizations and individuals with a passion for servant leadership. We value members who understand the principles of competence and character resulting in a high-trust organizational culture.
