IE Center for Diversity in Global Management

The center

We live in complex times, when complex solutions are needed and where one-size fits all solutions no longer apply. Diversity is a journey and like any journey, requires careful navigation. The mission of the IE Center for Diversity in Global Management to help organizations navigate these complex times by harnessing the power of diversity to help them become resilient, efficient and to innovate. The IE Center for Diversity in Global Management was created in September 2002, and has since become an invaluable resource for the IE community. The Center’s objectives are essentially achieved via training, applied research and awareness-raising activities, as well as through networking events designed to foster international debate. Supported by the IE Foundation, the center draws on the technological and entrepreneurial spirit of IE, benefitting from its emphasis on the Humanities.

Would you like to know if your company is a reference in the management of diversity for innovation?

The InnoDiversity Tree (el Árbol de la InnoDiversidad) is the first indicator index on the level of innovation and diversity for Spanish companies. Launched by the IE Center for Diversity in Global Management and Fundación para la Diversidad, in collaboration with HP and Pfizer. Companies can benefit from the application of electronic self-diagnosis, so that they can measure, compare, and find guidelines for improvement in their management of diversity for innovation, for free. The InnoDiversity Tree is based on solid academic research that measures these two differentiating elements (Innovation and Diversity).

On November 2020, we’ll launch the new version that will let you know how your company is positioned in Diversity, Innovation and InnoDiversity.
