Let's change the equation for diversity across every industry.
Take the pledge and become a Multiplier today.

If every leader pledges to sponsor one diverse* person to advance to the next level, collectively we can have a multiplier effect on building a diverse pipeline of extraordinary talent at every level and industry.

    Today, I take the pledge to:
  • Sponsor one diverse person
  • Challenge my peers to take The Multiplier Effect Pledge

*Full–spectrum diversity—inclusive of gender, generation, race, ethnicity, orientation, ability, nationality, religion, veteran status, background, culture, experience, strengths, and perspectives.
