Collaboration Fuels Workplace Excellence and Board Diversity
RALEIGH, January 24, 2022 – The Diversity Movement and TAKE YOUR SEAT, two of the nation’s leading companies committed to advancing equity in America’s boardrooms, announced today they will join forces to fuel workplace excellence and board diversity with online and hybrid digital learning materials, toolkits, on-demand certification programs, curated content, and networking events.
Combining expertise and resources, The Diversity Movement and TAKE YOUR SEAT will provide companies with the content and education they need to supercharge their DEI efforts, starting with BOARDView and The Inclusive Leadership Series.
One of the first initiatives derived from the partnership is an exclusive Executive Briefing for existing clients that will bring together DEI leaders to discuss their challenges and opportunities as they build and strengthen workplace excellence at their organizations.
“By every measure, we see diversity powering innovation, creativity, and profitability,” said Donald Thompson, chief executive officer of The Diversity Movement. “Our commitment to helping organizations create scalable and measurable DEI programming fits perfectly with TAKE YOUR SEAT’s focus on creating boardroom equity and together we will continue driving authentic, courageous, and value-driven conversations that solve real-world challenges.”
BOARDView, a 12-hour program designed to fuel interest in board service and empower those who do not yet have board experience, begins January 28 and is now open for registration here. The Inclusive Leadership Series, designed for seasoned, outstanding individuals committed to charting a path to build the 21st century boardroom is open for registration here.
“This partnership comes at a time when companies and their boards are under intense scrutiny to recognize the immense value of diversity and inclusion in the boardroom. The actions and composition of boards are becoming more transparent to every kind of stakeholder. TAKE YOUR SEAT is working to widen the aperture for diverse talent in the boardroom and to equip directors with the critical tools they need to thrive in this new era of governance,” said Jerusha Stewart, CEO of TAKE YOUR SEAT.
