As we begin a new decade, organizations and their leaders are confronted with numerous challenges. Fully understanding and engaging all of an organizations’ talent is directly tied to leveraging opportunities for growth and marketplace success. To that end, the goals of this council include:

  • Gaining a deeper understanding of how different regional business conditions affect the work of global inclusion executives
  • Shaping and sharing best global D&I strategies
  • Articulating and acquiring additional competencies for effective D&I professionals today and in the future

Our conversations help to break down outdated norms and contribute to member companies’ ongoing success.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership.
