In a time of substantial transformation in the business and diversity & inclusion landscapes, the stakes are high. Organizations and their leaders need to understand both the competitive advantage of a focus on D&I as well as the brand risks due to missteps and misaligned strategies. The Conference Board Diversity & Inclusion Academy provides new D&I and human capital leaders with contemporary approaches and a shorter path to meaningful results. 

This program builds on The Conference Board report Developing a Competency Model for Diversity and Inclusion Practitioners.
