Purpose and Benefits of a DIB Advisory Group

Internal diversity groups are a valuable component of a company’s diversity, inclusion and belonging strategy, because they provide “an inclusive and effective mechanism for managing and initiating diversity, inclusion and belonging and DIB programs. Diversity councils/groups successfully integrate the companies’ DIB programs with their operations, strategies, and missions and objectives. They provide platforms for assessing the effectiveness of the DIB program, introducing reform, and overseeing the DIB. They also demonstrate the companies’ commitment to DIB.

The Global DIB Advisory Group is designed to provide greater representation of the diversity, inclusion and belonging of GitLabs workforce. The group will assist with global feedback in implementing the diversity, inclusion and belonging strategy, policies and initiatives.
