Driving the DEI Agenda
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are priorities for all organisations today. Building a diverse organisation brings a host of benefits—such as increased innovation and performance—but these benefits are only gained when organisations pair diversity with an inclusive culture. While informed leaders and organisations understand the strategic importance of diversity and inclusion, realising that goal is challenging.
How do you address cultural, systemic or structural obstacles within your organisation and your culture—obstacles that impede the progress and advancement of all of your people? And how do you design and implement the kinds of strategies, programmes and processes—as well as the behavioural norms—that not only attract, but retain and empower the diversity of talent that your organisation truly needs?
The Advancing Diversity and Inclusion programme empowers you to seize and leverage the power of difference in a way that is as meaningful as it is sustainable. Targeting five strategic areas of focus, the programme equips you with the understanding, the vision and the frameworks to identify the obstacles, build the strategies, and nurture the inclusive culture, processes and interpersonal dynamics to truly lead change.
Advancing Diversity and Inclusion is your roadmap to unlocking the promise of diversity for your organisation today and tomorrow.
How you benefit
- Identify and address the challenges that block diverse and inclusive culture
- Formulate game-changing strategies to accelerate progress
- Challenge cultural roadblocks and shift mindsets
- Implement inclusive processes and interpersonal practices that inspire and reward positive change

The Advancing Diversity and Inclusion programme is designed for:

- Senior executives who are responsible for driving the diversity, equity and inclusion agenda of their organisations.
The programme is also relevant for human resources, and diversity, equity and inclusion specialists.
This programme qualifies for the INSEAD Online Certificates: Leading in a Transforming World.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at INSEAD
Diversity is a foundational value of INSEAD. It is a value we hold dear, a cornerstone of the INSEAD education.
As the Business School for the World, INSEAD commits to cultivating a community that pursues equity, exemplifies inclusion, and cherishes diversity in all its dimensions.
The new rules requiring qualitative and quantitative disclosure about board diversity will better inform investors and (hopefully) spur further progress.
The dissimilar backgrounds of diverse team members often result in clashes unless care is taken to create a psychologically safe environment.
Organisations – including business schools – are increasingly focused on expanding their DEI capabilities. Consider these best practices for productive conversations around DEI.
