Accessibility Update

Diversity Collegium following W3W Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)

The Diversity Collegium is in the process of preparing this website to be accessible following the guidelines provided by the W3W Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), a worldwide initiative to make the Web more accessible for persons with disabilities, which is a critically important D&I goal.

Generally, the Global Diversity & Inclusion Benchmarks (GDIB), which the Collegium sponsors, follows the guidelines provided by the WAI. As the 2016 GDIB goes to press, and while it has been designed with accessibility in mind, there is still some work to do. For that reason and for further accommodation, we have also provided an Alternate Format version.

New survey: We invite you to participate in research on ethical decision-making

Collegium member Alan Richter is announcing a new research effort. The Project Management Institute (PMI) has partnered with QED Consulting (Alan’s firm) to create a survey to explore global responses to ethical issues and dilemmas, and examine the influence of culture as well as gender, age, education, profession, etc., on ethical decision-making.

The survey results will illuminate differences in ethical decision-making across diversity dimensions, specifically in the workplace.

The collaboration of PMI and QED hopes to gather data from all around the world. Please feel free to share this invitation and link to take the survey with colleagues domestically and globally. It only takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. Survey findings will be posted on the PMI website once sufficient data have been analyzed. We will provide a notice on the Collegium website when this occurs.

To take the survey, please go to: https://www.research.net/r/globalethicsresearch

Please only take the survey once, but share the link widely. The survey will be open to the end of 2016.

Thank you for visiting the Website of the Diversity Collegium.
