GDL, June 3, 2015
The aim of the Global Diversity List (GDL) is to create the definitive global diversity standard that covers every strand of diversity in every country in the world. The diversity profession has developed organically as a branch of Human Resources over the last two decades. As yet, there are no formal qualifications required to be a diversity professional. The creation of the GDL addresses this fundamental weakness in the profession.
For organisations there is no universal, global, independent standard that exists to quantify their performance in the delivery of diversity. The creation of a GDL will address this shortfall in the assessment of company performance in diversity.
Nominations are now invited for the categories within the Global Diversity List 2015. The closing date for nominations is 31st July.
The definitive Global Diversity List will be announced on 31st October.
