NPD established our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Board to guide the company on our journey to become a more diverse organization. It highlights our corporate commitment to a more inclusive culture, while also providing ways for diverse voices to share concerns and light the way forward.

To foster a more inclusive work environment, NPD offers unconscious-bias training, and other company-wide training sessions. We’ve also sponsored listening circles, business resource groups, and special events highlighting diversity in the workplace – all with a focus on empowering employees of any race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation to know they are valued as fully engaged members of the NPD team.


DEI Advisory Board 

Our DEI Advisory Board represents a cross-section of communities across NPD, as well as different functions and levels of experience, to elevate and empower a broad range of voices and experiences.

Celebrating Diversity at NPD All Year Long

Our NPD Insider intranet site keeps all of our employees in the know, with timely content covering the latest information affecting their work lives – including our ongoing DEI journey.

Employee-powered Business Resource Groups.

Business Resource Groups (BRGs) are voluntary employee groups that share the concerns of a common race, gender, national origin, or sexual orientation. All NPD employees are free to participate as members of the focus community or as allies. BRGs support career development, thought leadership, and community outreach. We have launched two BRGs – and more are on the way: The Black TABLE (Black/African Americans) and Somos NPD (Hispanic/Latinx).
