About the Association of Diversity Councils
The purpose and focus of the Association of Diversity Councils is to increase the impact and effectiveness of diversity councils, council groups and their members. Through our membership network, best practice conversations, measurement scorecards and various council training programs, we work with councils to create, operationalize and effectively mobilize their councils.
We offer various resources designed for organizations wanting to start up a council or mature councils looking to do better. Our highly-impactful, interactive programs and services will help your council and each council member to gain the competence and confidence, knowledge, strategies, tools and skills to reach peak performance.
