Diversity and Inclusion

inclusive, welcoming, striving to be our best

New North recognizes the importance of a vibrant and diverse citizenry in the region. Diversity is good for business and will help propel Northeastern Wisconsin enterprise into the future.

Business leaders, partners and economic development leaders of Northeast Wisconsin feel it is important to create a covenant with each other that expresses our commitment to, and support of, diversity planning. It is our hope that this work will inspire our communities to join our region in the quest to become a place that is “welcoming, inclusive and constantly striving to be our best.”

New North is leading conversations about how we can be a more conscious, courageous, and compassionate region for all.  We encourage stakeholders to view the following Microsoft learning videos:
