June 2021: As parts of the world begin to see glimmers of hope concerning the pandemic, 2021 will be a year of transition. With social justice issues coming to the forefront, the movement towards diversity and inclusion has intensified. Communicators are essential in leading this transformation as they assist companies, their CEOs and boards to understand their role in this new environment. Therefore, Global Alliance wants to encourage its global partners in sharing their knowledge, insight and experience through webinars, podcasts, and written materials for the campaign.
The COO of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg shared her thoughts on diversity, “We need to resist the tyranny of low expectations. We need to open our eyes to the inequality that remains. We won’t unlock the full potential of the workplace until we see how far from equality we really are.”
This diversity and inclusion month aims to create a consistently high-trust workplace experience for everyone, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization or institution.
