Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Inclusiveness and diversity—in gender, professional designation, experience in the profession, race & ethnicity, religion, abilities, skills, traits, and other factors—are valuable to the estate planning professions in fostering cooperation, excellence, innovation, and broader social acceptance of our differences. The Northern Virginia Estate Planning Council believes all people should feel respected and included and diversity should be celebrated. We endeavor to promote inclusiveness and diversity in our recruitment, membership, leadership, speakers, vendors, sponsors, and affiliates through awareness and education. NVEPC is committed to cultivating and supporting a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
