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. We gather 250 of the most dynamic executives from Blue-Chip, multi-national companies. They 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 led a global awareness initiative, opening the dialogue from the floor of the world's largest stock exchange – the center of the world's most dynamic companies. That dialogue continues with C-Suite level executives who network with their peers to share best practices, resources and develop strategic alliances that help meet their global needs. The event is broadcast across diverse media outlets and includes global social media coverage. In 2015, we'll be hosting events in New York and London.
Each year, companies have an opportunity to engage their employees in offices around the world in one single event – and invite them to participate in a dialogue that unites the workforce around an issue that is pervasive throughout every culture. Participants define Next Steps for leveraging this conversation, mutual interests and new relationships to help grow and strengthen global market share for companies.
