CO-Brand the GDEIB

What distinguishes the GDEIB from other global benchmarking tools is that it has both gravity and gravitas. It also has longevity and maturity due to it being developed over many years in collaboration with some of the most progressive organizations and diversity experts in the world. Taken altogether, the end result is a tool that has credibility, sustainability, and the capability to bring about real change.”

A NOTE FROM THE ED

Sudeep Potrait for The Centre.jpg

Dear Readers, 

 

During my engagement with many of our subscribers, I have received much feedback as to how they would like to receive their information through the newsletter. Your comments, feedback and honest opinions were received with gratitude. As I have said to many of you, I am trying my best to leave no one behind.

To address all that I have received, I have set up a Communications Committee comprised of DEI interested young individuals across the globe who will help me tailor the newsletter in a manner that will match close to your expectations. Some of my own ideas will also be included as well. 

 

Thus, in the coming months there will be much work and you may find some delays receiving the newsletter, or find further improvements as we develop a format that is acceptable to all. Forgive me and the Committee.

 

I wish you all well, stay safe and take care

 

Sudeep

Executive Director

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be a new powerful tool to address inclusion in the workplace and society, but it is fraught with pitfalls and marketing hype, which overshadow reality and can lead to results that are opposite to expectations. In this webinar, you will gain some insight on: 


  • The basics of algorithms and how AI algorithms operate 
  • How poor quality, as well as conscious and unconscious bias can affect algorithms 
  • How to ask questions, leading to understand their fit for purpose and effectiveness 


Understanding how AI algorithms are developed and how they operate, and developing a methodology of validation, can facilitate the appropriate deployment of such tools, prevent painful blunders and foster outcomes that align with your organization’s values and expectations.

-GDEIB BEST PRACTICES-

ACTIONS TO HELP ACHIEVE THIS GLOBAL DEI BENCHMARK

THE US NAVY’S DEDICATION

TO DEI LEARNING

Written by Jessica Milam, Inclusion and Diversity Advisor at US Navy & GDEIB Expert Panellist.

To reach GDEIB Level 4 in Category 10: DEI Learning and Development, your organization needs to master benchmark 10.7, “DEI learning and education involves ongoing, multi-year, developmental curricula.” This is a small but mighty standard and here’s how the US Navy tackled it. 

 

The Navy developed diversity, equity, and inclusion core competencies for all military members. The competencies came from a model developed by GDEIB Expert Panellist Dr. Renee Yuengling who customized them for the Navy. The competencies are designed like building blocks throughout a career, and woven into each stage of professional military education. Military leaders are “grown” from the bottom up; you must enter the military and work your way through the ranks. A person recently assessed into the Navy is responsible for demonstrating simple DEI competencies and as their career progresses the competencies increase in complexity, so our senior personnel are true inclusion champions. 

 

In addition to training all Navy personnel in DEI, practitioners are assigned throughout the Navy who bring a higher level and more nuanced knowledge of DEI to their units. They complete additional training, starting with a two-day course for newly assigned practitioners and then participate in monthly webinars on a variety of subjects. A helpful hint is that we develop the webinar topics through feedback from our practitioners but also keeping the topics listed in GDEIB Level 5, benchmark 10.3. 

 

Additionally, in order to leverage the experience of all of our practitioners, we host quarterly roundtables to facilitate sharing promising practices and house resources. All practitioners are part of a Navy-wide culture working group that situates DEI work as key to cultivating a culture of excellence.

SUPPORTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF WOMEN THROUGH A CIRCLE MENTORING APPROACH

Screen Shot 2022-01-31 at 4.09.03 PM.png

By Dianne Bennet, Carrie Elrick, Louisa Pohl, and Dr. Cranla Warren. See end of this article (after READ MORE) for author bios.

Organizations should consider developing DEI programs to support women in their career development. This helps achieve GDEIB Benchmark 5.3: “The organization’s reputation for quality DEI initiatives enhances its ability to retain and advance diverse employees.” One such example is the circle mentoring program developed and implemented by the authors. 

Key learnings indicate circle mentoring supports women in their career development in several ways:  

  1. The notion that sexist behaviour is something that women must endure at work is dispelled.  
  2. Women develop an intentional and supportive professional network to help plan their career. 
  3. A circle mentoring approach upends the traditional mentoring model to a more mentee-centric focus. The result is an engaged group committed to supporting each other. 

Mentoring generally refers to an experienced person sharing their knowledge with a less experienced person.  The benefits of providing mentoring within organizations is well documented[1], and the need for women to be mentored by other women is stronger than ever. Women in the workplace are impacted greatly by the Covid-19 pandemic in myriad ways. Developing a circle mentoring approach to support women, especially women at the margins, is of great benefit to both the individuals involved and the organization, as mentoring develops higher rates of engagement and lower rates of employee turnover.[2]

A TRIBUTE TO OUR PROMINENT

AND DISTINGUISHED DEI LEADER

—LORIE VALLE-YAÑEZ RETIRES FROM MASSMUTUAL AS HEAD OF DEI—

laurie-elegant-golden-frame-2021-09-02-06-42-31-utc.png

AND LEAVES LORIEISMS

FOR OTHERS TO FOLLOW

Lorie Valle-Yañez is currently a GDEIB Expert Panelist and has been since the 2011 GDIB Edition. In addition, MassMutual is one of The Centre’s sponsors. But most of all, “Lorie is one of the finest chief diversity officers I know,” says article author, Julie O’Mara.

From Michael Muñoz, Global Marketing DEI, Google: “Lorie, in many ways, is a trailblazer and I was fortunate enough to have a front row seat for almost ten years while Lorie was my boss at ESPN and MassMutual. Lorie took me in when I was super green and taught me, by example, what the practice of diversity, equity, and inclusion truly means long before it was in vogue. Lorie role modeled humility, resourcefulness, telling truth to power, servant leadership, and vulnerability before there were podcasts or HBR articles on the subject. She was selfless in the work—always putting people and groups that have been historically in the margins at the center of the work and doing so unapologetically. I will be forever indebted to Lorie for everything she has done for me and can say unequivocally that I would not have the career I have today had I not spent those years with Lorie. Lorie is a mentor, a role model, and above all a friend, and I am truly grateful to have had the opportunity to start my career by working with Lorie. Her impact on the companies and, I know to her more importantly, the people within those companies, cannot be understated   they and we are all better for having Lorie at the helm all these years.”

 

From EP Chris M. Mendoza, DBA, Multicultural Marketing and Strategy, Prudential Financial: “It was great to work with Lorie. In fact, I was on the selection committee that recommended she be hired. During the interview process, I could see Lorie had a lot of drive and personal passion about the work. Her energy is what I saw that she would or could bring to the role. That, I believe, is what's needed to do this work. Without it, people approach things like a project. DEI is MORE THAN just a project – it’s about being a practitioner and evangelizing about it nonstop until you have converts, believers, and supporters. She did that.

 

“It was my sincere pleasure to work alongside Lorie at MassMutual advancing inclusion and diversity at the company. Lorie brought energy, excitement, passion, and motivation to her role. Her energy for the work spread quickly, creating supporters and sponsors for the work at all levels of the organization. She was a mentor to many, including myself. 

 

“I learned a lot from working with Lorie, perhaps the most important lesson being about how to get support for your work and then step back and let leaders lead. Meaning, while the work of a diversity practitioner is important, one cannot mandate or direct others to do anything. The role of the DEI professional is to empower and influence the business leader with strategies to advance their areas. By doing this, the business leader goes from being a passive participant to an owner and sponsor for the work. Lorie provided the company with a solid foundation for the future. She will be missed.”

THE MANY FACES OF JEDI:

A DEVELOPMENTAL EXPLORATION

Screen Shot 2022-01-29 at 5.56.02 PM.png

Written by Dr. Aftab Erfan, Chief Equity Officer, City of Vancouver, Canada, a GDEIB user. This paper was originally published in INTEGRAL REVIEW, an online, open access, peer-reviewed journal publishing a transdisciplinary and transcultural range of works that, taken as a whole, model integral ways of perceiving, thinking, researching, and serving the world we live in. There’s a link to the full PDF of the paper at the end of this newsletter article.

 

Below is our summary of Aftab’s paper, The Many Faces of JEDI.

Many organizations and communities have grown initiatives dedicated to advancing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) at a time when global and local inequities are front and center in the societal discourse. The movement towards JEDI is simultaneously full of positive transformative potential, and also full of both ideological and interpersonal conflict.

 

In the paper, Aftab applies the structure of seven action-logics from adult development theory to describe how one’s orientation to JEDI issues may mature over time. She offers suggestions for how those with more mature action-logic can become more effective in the JEDI space by recognizing the dynamics at play from a developmental perspective.

 

Adult development theory suggests that people develop through several stages or plateaus (also known as action-logics). Research has shown that leaders at later action-logics are more effective in complex organizational contexts.

 

The Seven Action-logics

Different schools of adult development theory describe the stages of development in somewhat different ways. Here, in its most condensed form, is Torbert’s articulation of the seven action-logics:

  • Opportunist – Deeply concerned with their own needs. Tries to win any way possible.
  • Diplomat – Focuses on conforming with the rules and norms of the organization or peers.
  • Expert – Motivated to gain mastery and expertise. Values logic and respects other experts.
  • Achiever – Driven by goals, achievement, and meeting the standards they have set for themselves.
  • Redefining – Inspired by meaning and purpose. Challenges the status quo to find new ways.
  • Transforming – Generates organizational and personal transformations. Sees the system they are in.
  • Alchemist– Leads with fluidity, seeing the interdependent nature of things. Integrates wisdom and a global conscience.

This article is provided by

GDEIB Expert Panellist, Jae Pi’ilani Requiro,

Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion,

AEG, the world’s leading sports and live entertainment company.  Goldenvoice is a subsidiary of AEG.

During the week of 8 November 2021, AEG and Goldenvoice welcomed more than 200 high school and college students from Clark County, Nevada and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to participate in the inaugural Day N Vegas Community Program. Students received exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the Day N Vegas music festival and insights about jobs in the live entertainment industry.


“When I was getting started in my career, I never saw women of color in leadership roles,” said Jae Pi’ilani Requiro, Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, AEG. “Representation matters and when young people see people who look like them in leadership roles, they can see that their career opportunities are endless,” said Jae Pi’ilani Requiro. 


“At Goldenvoice and AEG, we prioritize diversity in all aspects of our business and community programs like this as a great steppingstone to engaging young people by exposing them to careers and viable career paths that they otherwise might not have known existed,” said Requiro.

SAYING GOODBYE AS

NEWSLETTER COEDITORS

 

With a wonderful degree of satisfaction, Cathy Gallagher-Louisy and Julie O'Mara say goodbye as your editors of this monthly newsletter. We have done this as volunteers and it has been a pleasure, as well as an opportunity to learn. Cathy has served as an editor since the July 2020 edition and Julie since the Centre for Global Inclusion began in July 2017. 

 

What Cathy and Julie say about Jeanne Spahr and Shawndra Cox. “We are grateful to Shawndra for making our plain copy come to life with wonderful graphics, and putting it all together and to Jeanne for managing the information we include, proofing, and helping with the newsletter in too many ways to mention."

 

What Julie says of working with Cathy: “Cathy has been a pleasure to work with. As you can imagine the monthly newsletter is filed with many tasks such as selecting potential topics to address against objectives, much administrative effort to follow up on information needed from sources, not to mention writing, editing, and proofing. Even though Cathy’s new consulting business has grown significantly since she started it in August, 2020, she has managed to write her share of the articles with clear-headed thinking and staying on deadline. And she’s just been fun to work with and full of ideas. I will miss our strategy meetings and her thoughtfulness.”

 

What Cathy says of working with Julie: “I have long been impressed by Julie’s passion, energy, and fierce commitment to the integrity of The Centre, the GDEIB, and the Expert Panellists. Working more closely with her showed me how Julie centers her principles and business ethics in her day-to-day work and decision making. Julie has been a driving force advancing the work of DEI practitioners globally for many years. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity to work with her and learn from her. I will certainly miss it.”

SEND US YOUR NEWS 

SO THAT WE CAN FEATURE YOU

in upcoming editions of the GDEIB Newsletter


We are always looking for stories of organizations around the world that are making strides in diversity, equity, and inclusion, and/or organizations that have achieved GDEIB benchmarks. You don’t have to be at the Best Practice level on every benchmark to be featured. We like stories that describe how an organization achieved ONE of the benchmarks. To submit a story, please contact us: https://centreforglobalinclusion.org/contact/
