Diversity Executive Leadership Program
The Diversity Executive Leadership Program helps professionals from underrepresented segments of the association community advance into the ranks of leadership. DELP is funded in part through a long-standing relationship with the Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Major Research Initiatives
Association Inclusion Index
The Association Inclusion Index is the first diversity and inclusion assessment specifically for associations. Developed with input from experts in the field, the Index helps association executives simplify the process of gathering data and assessing their own efforts with regard to D+I policies and practices. The Index is being moved to a new assessment portal and will be relaunched later this year. For more information about the Association Inclusion Index, contact the ASAE Office of Diversity and Inclusion ([email protected]).
Association Impact on Diversity and Inclusion in Professions
This new research study will examine how associations affect diversity and inclusion in the industries and professions they represent. This research is intended to help association leaders define their role in promoting D+I in those fields, assess their D+I needs and benefits, and identify ways they can increase recruitment and retention of diverse groups.
