Why 'D.E.I.B.'?

A message from our CEO, Elaine Newman

At Global Learning, we deliberately choose to use the acronym DEIB—Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging—to embody our holistic approach to creating more inclusive workplaces and societies. We believe that true inclusivity is achieved when every individual feels a genuine sense of belonging, which is why we go beyond the traditional DEI framework. By emphasizing belonging as the ultimate goal, we empower organizations to foster environments where all employees and clients feel valued, respected, and connected. Our DEIB solutions, and expert guidance are designed to help you create a culture of belonging that drives organizational success.
