About The First Coast Diversity Council

Our Mission: To be a resource that builds awareness, educates, influences and supports the value of diversity in the First Coast business and community sectors.

Tony JenkinsThe First Coast Diversity Council was the brainchild of Tony Jenkins ( Market President Central Florida and Vice President of Cultural Competence and Diversity Systems with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida) and Robin Norton (Assistant Vice President of Human Resources and Diversity with Community First Credit Union). Together, they had a vision to begin an organization that would result in a stronger, more culturally inclusive environment for individuals and companies in Northeast Florida. They recruited 11 companies to become the founding members of the FCDC. Today, that number has grown to 30 companies who are represented on the Council today. Non-corporate members, involved in various facets of diversity and inclusion, have been added.
