ABOUT THE TOOLS
The Diversity Collegium members and the GDIB authors and Expert Panelists hope that the GDIB continues to be widely used and helps individuals and organizations around the world improve the quality of diversity and inclusion work.
To assist users, we are providing a variety of user tools. Several are available now and more will be added in the future. Keep checking back for new tools.
To use these tools, which are free downloads, you must have received permission to use the GDIB. See the Permission Agreement.
The exception to the required permission is that you can view the slide show from this site as an opportunity to learn more about the GDIB, but if you want to share it with others for educational purposes, you will need to obtain permission.

OVERVIEW OF THE GDIB
This one-page description of the GDIB showing the model, how GDIB can be used, selected GDIB facts, plus how to download the GDIB, makes an excellent overview. If you want just one handout to use for general purposes, this is a good choice. Please note that it is copyrighted but you are granted permission for media use. Permission for other uses is granted if you have signed the Permission Agreement.
GDIB BENCHMARKS SAMPLER
This one-page sample of two benchmarks at the Best Practice level for each of the 14 categories is a good choice to show what a benchmark is. It can be used as a stand-alone handout or makes a good page two (reverse side) to the Overview of the GDIB. Please note that it is copyrighted but you are granted permission for media use.

2016 GDIB MISCELLANEOUS SLIDES
This is an assortment of slides that you can select from to use to put together your presentations. Some of the slides have a few notes...but if you want more scripting for some of the slides see the 2016 General Purpose GDIB slide deck/tutorial.
2016 General Purpose GDIB Slide Deck / Tutorial
This deck of slides with notes (See the Notes view) can be used as a general presentation for most purposes where you want to describe the GDIB. This deck does not contain activities; it is simply delivering information on the GDIB and how it works. The deck can be used as a "starter" deck for you to add, subtract, and change slides to create your own presentation. It can also be used as a tutorial to educate yourself and others on the GDIB. One can simply read the slides and the notes to learn the main provisions of the GDIB. We highly recommend that all users go through this slide deck as a tutorial as it will answer many questions for you. That along with reading the GDIB itself will help you understand the GDIB.
2016 General Purpose GDIB Slide Deck Coming Soon
A Leader Guide and Participant Materials to conduct a needs assessment for the GDIB is now available. The package includes a Leader Guide with a suggested 7-step process for conducting a D&I Needs Assessment. Fourteen checklists -- one on each of the 14 categories -- with scoring instructions are provided. You can choose to conduct an assessment on one category, several categories, or all categories. Please note that these checklists are provided in English as a hard copy. To use the checklists you must have signed the 2016 Permission Agreement for the GDIB, go here, and then you must request the checklist package, which is available in PDF format or Microsoft® Word version, at GDIB@diversitycollegium.org. We are open to providing translations and electronic versions if you can provide financial assistance.
So Where Are You? GDIB Activity
This activity is designed to be a quick assessment to determine the "current state" of an organization based on the level in each GDIB category. Instructions and a chart for posting responses are on the 1-page handout. It can be used in a meeting or presentation.
D&I APPROACHES INSIGHT AND IMPACT ACTIVITY
This 20 to 30-minute activity is designed to (1) educate participants on the Five Approaches to Diversity & Inclusion that are part of the GDIB and (2) help participants gain insight into the impact of the similarities and differences between their personal approach to D&I and their organization's approach to D&I and to determine how those differences or similarities might guide their actions. This one-page worksheet contains a summary of the Five Approaches and the activity instructions. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a Word document to customize the activity.
