The WNC DEC brings together partner companies to help create a more diverse workforce in Western North Carolina. The Coalition addresses the needs of the community by looking at professional development in a holistic way. The Professional Leadership Series will help individuals build skill sets to advance their careers. The mentoring program will help create opportunity by building a professional network. The WNC DEC invites businesses to adopt best practices for a diverse workforce and provides resources and articles for those businesses. A community is based on culture. The Asheville community and Western North Carolina offer many arts and cultural experiences. We will be adding relevant information and hosting events for the community. Please join us. 


WNC DEC’s vision is to create connections, build capacity and promote diverse professionals.
