The GDIB is a tremendous resource with multiple applications. From strategic planning to tactical development, to assessing progress and setting goals, to an easy to read yet substantive source for educating and engaging people in the work of Diversity & Inclusion. The GDIB has evolved over the past decade to remain current as well as to provide forward-looking content for what is possible for sustainable, comprehensive and effective D&I strategies.

One of the great things of the new version of the GDIB is that it integrates a category on Sustainability. It helps to build synergies within the organization and keep efforts aligned.

Diversity and inclusion encompass so many different dimensions and elements that there is a great need to provide proven standards and requirements that can clarify what D&I means in practice. The GDIB fills this need brilliantly and advances the whole D&I field.

GDIB enhances our imagination about the real situation in diverse organizations, and inspires us towards new ways of working together.

The GDIB helps organizations get past the superficial trap of the Four Fs: Food, Fun, Fiesta, and Fetish, to be able to realize a more holistic, meaningful and professional D&I strategy.

We recognize that a diverse and inclusive workplace is foundational to the achievement of our business goals. The GDIB provides us with a checklist of exemplary practices that we use to mark our progress toward a fully inclusive workplace and guides us in setting goals for future initiatives to enhance inclusion in our organization. The format of the GDIB makes the tool accessible and easy to use and share within the organization.
