Research Triangle Park is a community of more than 60,000 employees and more than 375 companies.

As we look to the future, we are seeking ways to work intentionally with partners to promote what matters most to us: creating an environment that energizes North Carolina's brightest minds and empowers them to do their best work.

We value every member of our community, and are working with our companies to create resource groups for women, people of color, veterans, LGBTQ+ and employees with disabilities. If you'd like to be part of this important conversation, email
