Working across differences and bringing together divergent points of view is integral to the work of diplomats. The ability to build coalitions, understanding, and an agreement for how to achieve a common goal are skills that are also applicable for DEI practitioners. Both diplomats and DEI professionals must manage competing priorities, budgets, and being accountable for achieving their goals.

This podcast shares the ENVOY Model with participants as a framework for key insights from the diplomatic field and how they can be used to achieve the desired end results for DEI practitioners.
