NJEDA’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (d&i)

The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) Diversity & Inclusion Unit supports the Authority’s commitment to growing New Jersey’s economy and increasing equitable access to opportunity. 

The NJEDA believes that diversity, equity, and inclusion are inherent to creating a stronger and fairer New Jersey economy and building a diverse workforce increases business performance. The Authority is guided by the concept of “diversity on purpose,” the idea that diversity at the NJEDA and in the businesses and communities the Authority serves should not only be recognized but intentionally fostered. This principle drives the NJEDA to produce innovative programs and services that best serve New Jersey’s diverse residents, communities, and businesses.
