On June 25, GMG conducted its 4th Diversity Roundtable entitled, “Introduction of New & Innovative Diversity Tools & Solutions.” The event was hosted at Moore Capital and had 16 different companies attend. Featured was guest speaker, D. Michael “Mickey” Collins, Director of the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion at the FDIC.
Mr. Collins provided insight on the FDIC’s road to Diversity & Inclusion, stressing that a strategic plan, along with full transparency and accountability, are all essential parts in the diversification of a company. Entirely submerging employees into the process, by the use of committees and training, help to truly track the advancement and embed Diversity & Inclusion into the DNA of the firm.
In order to ensure companies abide by the upcoming Diversity Mandate, Dodd-Frank Section 342, two innovative tools were introduced: GMG Diversity Product Exchange (DPX) and GMG Thrive Metrics. These two solutions will not only help companies comply with Dodd-Frank, but will also serve as a window for new revenue and business opportunities.
