Our Work to Elevate Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Earns Acclaimed Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards
Among hundreds of international applicants, 2 EDI-focused leadership programs developed for CCL clients have received awards from the research and analyst firm Brandon Hall Group’s annual Human Capital Management (HCM) Excellence Awards.
Merck, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, and CCL received a Gold award for their Diverse Leadership Program, a custom program CCL developed to help leaders of color hone their leadership skills while exploring what it means to be a diverse leader at Merck.
Merck is strongly committed to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of its global business and considers diversity in management, both from a gender and racial/ethnic perspective, a key performance indicator.
Merck partnered with CCL to develop the Diverse Leadership Program (DLP). The program is aimed at preparing high-potential African-American, Hispanic/Latino, and Asian American leaders for senior leadership positions. It’s also designed to help prospective senior leaders of color develop stronger networks inside the company to build a culture of inclusion.
FCA (now Stellaris) received a Bronze award for excellence in the Best Advance in Leadership Development for Women category for the custom program they developed in partnership with CCL, the Women’s Leadership Experience (WLE).
WLE is a unique training and development program for women, focused on early- to mid-level career professionals. Now in its third year, WLE was spearheaded by members of the Women’s Alliance business resource group at FCA.
Women’s Alliance is one of 10 employee-directed business resource groups at the company that work to bridge multicultural differences and to support career opportunities for members.
“The result was an 8-month program offering participants a mix of experiences, including executive coaching, executive sponsors (both men and women), 360 surveys, and customized leadership training opportunities,” said Teresa Thiele, Director of Mopar Purchasing and Supplier Operations and Co-Chair of the Women’s Alliance Board and WLE Committee, FCA-North America. “This robust program was designed to enrich participant perspectives of the business, connection to senior leaders, and enhance their individual leadership tool kit.”
CCL is proud to partner with clients on these award-winning programs that are contributing to the important work of elevating equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace. Learn more about CCL’s EDI Solutions today.
