Top 50 Diversity Professionals In Industry
The first ever assessment of the world’s leading authorities on diversity was announced on Saturday 31 October 2015. The Global Diversity List, a comprehensive guide to the individuals who are putting diversity at the heart of human resources within the world’s biggest organisations, the list is supported by The Economist and was launched at their offices in both London and New York.
It is the first time a global assessment of individuals and companies demonstrating a concrete commitment to diversity has been compiled and organisers, including Google’s former head of diversity and inclusion, Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe, say it will address the weakness in the evaluation of company performance in diversity.
It has already been welcomed by global corporate giants with many of them becoming founding partners. Companies including Standard Chartered, Barclays, KPMG, BNP Paribas, Societe Generale, WorldPay, UBS and AT Kearney have joined this elite group.
The Global Diversity List, focuses on the top fifty professionals in industry, the world’s leading diversity consultants and provides a guide to the top ten employee networks based on women, LGBT, ethnicity and disability. A list of the top fifty diversity figures in public life was also published.
