PCI has recognized the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) through the creation of the Industry Diversity Committee in 2018, which aligns with Goal 3 of the PCI Strategic Plan.

This platform provides a space for our industry to stay relevant and healthy by fostering collaboration from a diverse group of contributors, thus producing creative solutions and the identification of more opportunities for members.

We look forward to your active participation in this initiative. If we can reduce our unconscious biases and provide equal access to opportunities and resources, our industry will continue to thrive.

Share your diversity strategy and or any further questions about this committee at membership@pci.org.
