About the Diversity Team

Promoting diversity through awareness, analysis, communication, knowledge, respect and celebration.


It is the mission of the NCI-Frederick Employee Diversity Team (EDT) to create opportunities, sponsor activities and develop outreach and education initiatives which:

  • Foster respect for all employees on the NCI-Frederick campus;
  • Celebrate the rich diversity which age, race, gender, ability, personality, culture, national origin, beliefs, sexual orientation, veteran status, marital status, job classification and other personal and organizational characteristics bring to the workplace;
  • Create and maintain a work environment which values differences and similarities in all employees and promotes productivity, work quality, equity and respectful communication.

It is the intent of the members of the EDT to serve as a central point of communication between all NCI-Frederick employees and management officials, empowering employees to have their voices heard and serving as a tool for management to communicate important messages and evaluate programs pertinent to EDT’s mission.
