Women entrepreneurs launch Diversity and Inclusion Coalition

Activision Blizzard, the Entertainment Software Association, the National Association of Manufacturers, the National Retail Federation, Inc, and independent Women Entrepreneurs, Inc, are leading a new, multistakeholder coalition to improve diversity and workplace culture.

Coalition Members will join forces to discuss best practices in inclusion, mentorship, workplace culture and training. Participants will also report progress to their fellow coalition members and leverage the shared experience of the coalition to help identify and ensure that industry-wide best practices will be introduced.

“Our members are committed to celebrating their diverse workforce, benefiting their teams and positively impacting the U.S. economy through this National Diversity and Inclusion Coalition,” said Gina Masi, president, National Association of Manufacturers. “This is an important opportunity for the diversified member base of the Coalition to work together in this important initiative.”

“We are grateful to our coalition members for supporting our work to accelerate the path to inclusive corporate success,” said Georgina Mace, Vice President, Talent and Workforce, Entertainment Software Association. “By aligning with National Diversity and Inclusion Coalition, ESA has brought together its broad network of video game producers, trade associations, and universities to discuss best practices for talent development and inclusion.”

“The National Diversity and Inclusion Coalition will develop and share a best-practices guide with our coalition partners in order to drive progress on these important issues,” said Cathy Hughes, founder, CEO and Chairman of Radio One. “We are grateful to have the opportunity to strengthen our commitment to diversifying the workforce and creating a meritocracy of opportunity.”
