Diversity Defined

At NPT, diversity is a concept that acknowledges value in the full spectrum of human experience. It includes differences in race, gender, age, national origin, ethnicity, disability, religion, culture, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status and other attributes that identify an individual, organization or group. We recognize that these are not the only factors that contribute to an individual’s identity. Some differences may be obvious, while others may be less apparent. We are committed to an evolving definition of diversity that embraces all forms of individual difference.
