It aims to educate, inspire, and lead diversity agendas to ensure the industry is an attractive and inclusive place to work. The council celebrates differences of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies as an asset and works to nurture an environment of involvement, respect and connection among all individuals working at member companies.
