The Global Diversity Leadership Exchange, a network of global thought leaders, meets at the intersection of sustainability and diversity and inclusion. It is designed to bring forward breakthrough ideas, solutions and collaboration for business growth, common good, and global prosperity. Inspirational leaders, chief executives from Blue-Chip, multi-national companies, and experts in a variety of industries listen, learn and share experiences in leveraging diversity and inclusion to support business objectives in emerging markets.
The first global diversity event of its kind, in 2012, NYSE member companies launched this global awareness initiative, opening the dialogue from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange – the global business center of the world's most dynamic companies. The dialogue continues in 2016 in London, U.K. with business leaders, global citizens and change agents who network with their peers to share best practices, resources and develop strategic alliances that help meet their global needs for sustainable growth and development. The event is broadcast across diverse media outlets and includes global social media coverage. #globaldiversity
Through the Global Diversity Leadership Exchange, companies and organizations have an opportunity to engage their employees, customers, and communities around the world in one single event – and invite them to participate in a dialogue that helps to build bridges between business and the communities they serve. Participants leverage the conversation, mutual interests and new relationships to define next steps to help grow and strengthen global market share for companies while strengthening communities.
