Global Diversity Network
In 2000, in partnership with BP, we launched the Global Diversity Network as a vehicle for companies to share their experiences and to collaborate around key challenges.
Over the last decade Barclays, BP, BT, Cadbury, Cable & Wireless, Convergys, Deutsche Bank, Dow Chemicals, Google, Kodak, KPMG, Kraft, National Australia Bank, Nokia, PepsiCo, PMI, Schlumberger, Starbucks, Shell, Tyco, Unilever and Vodafone have all played an active part in network activities.
Companies now come together on a project basis, as they did most recently when Google sponsored research into the experience of multinationals in gathering diversity demographic data globally.
A study, sponsored by Google, involving 12 multinational organisations exploring:
» The demographic data that they keep in their HR database and other management systems and how this differs from country to country.
» How they gather these data and what use they make of other diagnostic processes such as global people surveys, employee networks and focus groups.
Do contact us if you have a global diversity research topic that you would like to explore on a collaborative basis with other companies.
