Individualized Learning and Development Addressing All Aspects of a CDO's or Diversity Leader's Role, Facilitated by Highly-Experienced D&I Leaders
You are relatively new to the diversity and inclusion (D&I) field and it is important to become fully effective as soon as possible. You seek individualized, quick, high-impact development tailored to your specific needs and situation.
The organization's D&I work must move forward in the most-effective direction possible. You need a planning process that will help ensure the D&I initiative achieves business results that matter to your CEO.
You may be:
- A newly-appointed Chief Diversity Officer (CDO) or diversity leader
- An experienced executive or manager asked to lead your organization's new diversity initiative.
- A manager asked to lead a new diversity council or take personal responsibility for developing and managing a diversity action plan for your part of the organization.
- A diversity council asked to determine a direction for the organization's diversity and inclusion work.
Successfully managing diversity and inclusion (D&I) work requires specific knowledge and expertise in these primary areas:
Jump-start your D&I learning curve with a CDO Accelerator® custom individualized D&I development workshop for Chief Diversity Officers (CDOs), diversity leaders, and diversity councils.
Peter Bye, President of MDB Group, is uniquely qualified to coach you and build your expertise. Mr. Bye was one of the first white male diversity leaders of a Fortune 100 company (AT&T, starting in 1996). He created and led a new corporate diversity initiative for AT&T. Since 2002 he has led MDB Group's work to create many more D&I initiatives for clients. Mr. Bye's biography provides further background.

Obtain precisely the high-impact learning and development that you need with flexible delivery options. The specific content is individualized to your unique needs and usually can be delivered in a one-to-two day intensive workshop.
