Engage the Future:

A Look at the Growing Diversity in Northwest Arkansas

The July 2022 diversity report, produced by EngageNWA and the Northwest Arkansas Council, documents the region’s diverse population growth over the last several decades, provides comparative analysis with several peer regions, zooms in on the demographics of our regional school districts and highlights local organizations that are making diversity, equity and inclusion a priority.


“Belonging makes a place home, which means people can put down roots and give back to their communities in meaningful ways. Prioritizing belonging also acts as a magnet for talent, whether homegrown or from around the world, that makes Northwest Arkansas one of the country’s most dynamic and thriving communities.”

- Margot Lemaster, Executive Director, EngageNWA
