Aperian Global’s I&D Strategist to Serve as Expert Panelist

Categories: Diversity & Inclusion

Aperian Global is pleased to announce that The Centre for Global Inclusion – a 501c3 nonprofit organization – has invited our I&D strategist Mercedes Martin (pictured left) to serve as an Expert Panelist for the Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Benchmarks:  Standards for Organizations Around the World – 2021 Edition (GDEIB) publication. It will be available in 2021.

Expert Panelists are selected for their experience, knowledge, scholarship, and willingness to contribute significantly to the practical, consensus-based research that enables the benchmarks to work for small, medium, and large organizations in all sectors with various approaches to DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) around the world. Expert Panelists share their thought leadership to develop the GDEIB and help elevate the quality of DEI work.

“I’ve spent my career helping companies around the world reach their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion goals. I’m extraordinarily honored to bring my experience and knowledge to this prestigious organization’s helpful publication.”

— Mercedes Martin

The Expert Panelists are currently conducting research to create the 2021 edition of these DEI benchmarks, which will be available on The Centre’s website as a free download in early 2021. The GDIB has been updated three times since 2006. 

For 2021 it is being renamed GDEIB—Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Benchmarks. This is more than a name change. The Expert Panelists and co-authors are working hard to set standards that will help organizations implement a result-oriented DEI effort and help create a world that works for all.

Go to www.centreforglobalinclusion.com to learn more about the 2017 GDIB (available now) and the 2021 GDEIB. Both publications are free.
