DEIA Statement

At the Global Leadership Coalition, we are committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access (DEIA) as it is essential to accomplish our mission and vision.

The people we serve come from diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds, many geographies, a range of economic circumstances as well as different cultures, customs, and languages. We are dedicated to a policy of equal opportunity and don’t discriminate.

We believe that DEIA is more than just a set of policies and practices, it is a commitment to those individuals we work with as well as the global community. Our goal is to be an organization that has a culture of inclusion where everyone feels respected, supported, and listened to, and everyone is treated fairly in order to be their best selves and do their best work.

Each person brings their personal differences, attributes, and perspectives to their work. We commit to promoting equity in the workplace and with our team, our volunteers, and with our partners.

Together, we affirm human diversity in its many forms, encompassing but not limited to ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation and identification, religion, age, economic circumstance, class, veteran status, and disability. We are dedicated to ensuring that our team, volunteers, board, leadership, and partners reflect, respect, and support these differences.

Our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access commitment is aspirational; this means we need to be continually learning and improving. Our commitment has an internal focus on our team, governance, work practices, and organizational environment. We also have an external orientation towards our nonprofit, corporate, communications, and philanthropic partners as well as our ultimate beneficiaries.
