DIVERSITY WORKS EXCHANGE
The Diversity Works Exchange (DWX) is a learning collaborative that helps organizations set goals and improve performance around workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Our approach provides comparably situated, like-minded employers with a safe space to learn from DEI experts and interact with peers who are facing or are successfully addressing similar challenges.
The DWX is designed to help organizations improve across a wide range of DEI competencies, but each cohort selects its own priorities. Diversity Works creates a custom curriculum for each cohort and facilitates the learning process through a combination of online or in-person convenings, interactive webinars, and one-on-one coaching. We create a private, unlisted LinkedIn group for each cohort that allows participants to engage their peers and DEI experts at any time during their DWX term and beyond.
DEI LEADER NETWORK
The DEI Leader Network is a free resource for DEI professionals. We created the network because DEI leaders often feel isolated in their role and benefit from networking with their peers. To join the DEI Leader Network, please get in touch.
