Diversity in the Triangle

One of the most unique and valuable aspects of the Triangle is its diversity and marked focus on diversity, equity and inclusion within our school and business communities. Here you’ll find people working hard to foster and support inclusive spaces across all lines: race, gender, LGBTQ, veterans and disability.

The Triangle is a vibrant, eclectic mix of an estimated 2M people from all over the U.S. and the world. In Wake County, 40.6% of the population identifies as Black, Latinx, Asian, Native American, Multiracial, or Other. In Durham County, that number is 49.09%. This makes us one of the most racially and internationally diverse areas of the country.
