A think tank of diversity practitioners

Diversity Collegium launches its sponsorship of the Global Diversity and Inclusion Benchmarks

The Diversity Collegium is extraordinarily pleased to become the first and primary sponsor of the Global Diversity and Inclusion Benchmarks: Standards for Organizations Around the World, co-authored by Julie O'Mara, Collegium Emeritus member and Alan Richter, Collegium member along with 80 Expert Panelists. 

As organizations and societies strive to create inclusive environments and approaches, a tool such as the GDIB provides important information, guidance, and support. 

The Collegium launched its sponsorship at the 7th Annual Diversity and Inclusion Seminar in Barcelona, Spain, February 20-12, 2014. Several other conference presentations on the GDIB are scheduled. More info on these conferences here.
The Diversity Collegium is particularly pleased to sponsor the Global Diversity and Inclusion Benchmarks because it is one of the first comprehensive tools to explain what creating inclusive systems and managing diversity entails. We appreciate that the tool represents the best thinking of 80 experts around the world. Extremely significant is that it is free for anyone to use; all that is required is to ask permission so that we can track users and learn from their experience. For these reasons, The Diversity Collegium believes our sponsorship of the GDIB offers an important way for us to achieve our mission of advancing the field of Diversity and Inclusion. 

The Diversity Collegium is a think tank of practitioners, scholars and leaders whose mission is to advance the field of Diversity and Inclusion through dialogues, symposia, research and publications. Meeting for more than two decades, the group addresses and thinks critically about developmental stages and how to orchestrate and effect change among individuals, teams/groups, and organizations across sectors in this growing field.
