The Global Parity Alliance (GPA) – a cross-industry group committed to advancing DEI around the world – launched the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Lighthouse Programme in May 2022 to identify initiatives that have resulted in significant, quantifiable, scalable and sustainable impact, and uncover what those initiatives have in common. The ambition is to equip leaders with these insights, contributing to faster DEI impact across the global business community.
This report lays out the five success factors that emerged from the Lighthouse Programme and shares eight case studies of initiatives that were selected by an independent expert panel to become the first cohort of Global Parity Alliance DEI Lighthouses. It further highlights effective design and implementation approaches from seven additional initiatives.
The Lighthouse Programme is an annual effort to collect, synthesize and share insights on what drives impact on DEI in the workplace and beyond. Organizations that have implemented an initiative that has achieved significant impact are invited to submit it for review as part of the upcoming 2023/2024 DEI Lighthouse Programme
