Event Details


Diversity & Global Assisnments

Research shows that only 20% of global assignments are held by women, that LGBT staff are sometimes prematurely coached out of taking assignments, and that the challenges facing racial and religious minorities on assignment are often misunderstood or ignored by relocation counselors. Research also shows that almost 20% of assignees at the leadership level leave their overseas role well before the planned expiration of their assignment.  

This workshop explores the impact that gender, LGBT identity, ethnicity, and religion have on the success of relocation assignments. Learn how to leverage global diversity & inclusion strategies in successfully relocating your key talent. The session will utilize client-based challenges to help participants understand how diversity, identity, and national culture intersect for global assignees. Participants will review best practices from HR & Global Mobility specialists in addressing such D&I challenges before, during, and after the assignment.

Key Takeaways:

  • Explore the unique challenges that ethnicity, LGBT identity, gender and religion pose to global assignment candidates and their families
  • Reflect on case studies that demonstrate how diversity, identity and national culture intersect to impact your global assignees
  • Review best practices for HR & Global Mobility specialists in addressing such D&I challenges before, during and after the assignment
  • Consider strategies for creating a culturally-competent ecosystem for international assignments
  • Leave with tips, tools and ideas for successfully improving intercultural competence vis-à-vis the global mobility programs in your organization

This session is designed for Global Relocation and Global Mobility Specialists, Global Diversity & Inclusion Leaders, Corporate Relocation Counselors, Global Benefits Managers, and global assignment candidates exploring relocation opportunities. Get registered to learn more.
