Community Business customized the 2011 GDIB for this project and developed a recommended approach as to how this framework could be used in Asia.

THE DIVERSENZ PROJECT
DiverseNZ Inc. is a collaboration formed around a single question: How can we build our ability to manage diversity and inclusion – in our workforce, customers, partners, and investors, nationally and internationally – to create a distinctive source of value for our companies, and for New Zealand? Go to www.diverzenz.com to learn more about this project. The 2014 edition of the GDIB is one of its core resources.
