How to Measure and Boost Diversity, Equity and Inclusion with GDEIB
Future-focused organizations want to ensure long-term sustainability of our world and the people in our world. To optimize organizational results, creativity, problem solving, talent management and engagement, operations and innovation, organizational leaders need to adopt inclusive approaches, management strategies and styles that incorporate different perspectives, cognitive, cultural and linguistic differences, and collaboration.
Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Benchmarks (GDEIB) are the standards for organizations around the world. The GDIB helps organizations determine strategy and measure progress in managing diversity and fostering inclusion. Global Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Benchmarks Standards help by creating more equitable and better functioning organizations, confronting racism, sexism, and all forms of oppression, cultivate trust, acceptance, physical and psychological safety, lead inclusively, respond with agility, and thrive through disruption, promote wellness and self-care as ingredients for lasting change and contribute to creating a sustainable world.
