Center for Diversity in Global Management
The Center for Diversity in Global Management at IE was created in September 2002. The Center's mission is to promote diversity management of gender, culture, personality and age as a competitive advantage in the corporate world, through reflection, creation of knowledge and the dissemination of know-how. The Center's main aims are:
- To foster a greater understanding of the demand for and needs of corporate diversity, by analysing the improvement in bottom line results and effectiveness of inclusion policies.
- To improve diversity in the corporate world by promoting training programmes in management in minority groups both in western companies and developing countries, thus promoting the integration of women into the economic fabric.
- To generate debate and the exchange of experiences in the field of diversity
The center is organized as an umbrella for different researchers and professors. Permanent staff include the Director, one assistant, and regular collaboration for 2 additional IE professors. Each project is financed by different means (public or private funding), which might include hiring additional staff for the project.
