Executives who lead diversity and inclusion initiatives know that openness, collaboration, and heightened awareness of multi-dimensional diversity are the hallmarks of a high-performance culture. Diversity and inclusion (D&I) is the key to unlocking the full potential of employees and essential to ensuring the success and long term sustainability of every business. From opening vital talent pools and fueling innovation, to entering new markets and guiding product development, D&I is increasingly recognized as a force driving productivity, performance, and market growth.

Join i4cp as we bring together top executives from some of the world's most forward-thinking companies to explore the future of D&I and its evolving role in an increasingly multicultural, multi-generational, and regulated environment.

In addition to networking and collaborating with leading D&I practitioners in an exclusive, confidential environment free of vendors, members of the Chief Diversity Officer Board will actively influence i4cp's research on global diversity and inclusion, as well as receive breakthrough insights pertaining to D&I.

Executive-level research and networking

i4cp's Chief Diversity Officer Board provides unprecedented access to senior D&I executives, industry thought leaders, and discussions of topics such as:

  • The Evolving CDO Role
    How high-performance organizations are defining the CDO role, positioning D&I, and the backgrounds and competencies needed for future success in the field.
