Chief Diversity Officer WordCloudIn this video post, I discuss Chief Diversity Officers (CDO) standards of practice and introduce the NADOHE (National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education) Standards of Professional Practice for Chief Diversity Officers in hopes of advancing the discussion of professionalism and efficacy of integrating an articulated vision for diversity into our respective organizations. I've also gathered a few helpful resources for those looking to explore this topic further:

In the meantime, I want to hear from you:

Do you think there should be standard practices or a toolkit that all CDOs should have to do their job? Or should we just do our own thing?

I look forward to your responses below*, and I'd love your input.
