Supporting Professional Excellence and Advancement in Association Leadership



Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is a term used to describe programmes and policies that encourage representation and participation of diverse groups of people, including people of different genders, races and ethnicities, abilities and disabilities, religions, cultures, ages, and sexual orientations and people with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and skills and expertise. It is an expansion of the term “diversity and inclusion” (D&I) to reflect the growing focus on equity in organisations. DEI is not just a “feel-good” initiative. Research has found that having diverse viewpoints at all levels of an organisation improves financial results, organisational and team performance, innovation, and other areas of the business.

IAL members can access the following services to help expand  leadership capacity to advance our knowledge and skills around diversity, equity, inclusion, and access.
