Cultural Infusion’s CEO Peter Mousaferiadis presented the company’s innovation Diversity Atlas on November 30 at Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) 12th annual re:Invent conference, attended by 65,000 cloud professionals, enthusiasts and experts in Las Vegas, as part of the first-ever AWS Inclusion Playbook launch.
Diversity Atlas has a key role in AWS’s inclusion strategies and is featured in the Playbook, accompanied by the following statement: “AWS uses Diversity Atlas to enhance our data collection outside the U.S, particularly self-identification and inclusion.”
Peter Mousaferiadis said, “This is the culmination of work I commenced in the diversity and inclusion space in 1988 and this work is not possible without bringing together a range of disciplines spanning a range of disciplines, decades of work centring culture with diverse cultural communities and the computing power of state-of-the-art technology made available to us by AWS. We will be sharing many more exciting developments with the global community in the coming months.”
Launched at the 2019 Dialogue of Civilizations (DOC) Rhodes Forum in Greece, Diversity Atlas is the world’s most inclusive cultural diversity and experience mapping platform, equipping organisations to realise the social and economic value of diverse workforces and greater inclusion. It offers organisations a more engaging and sustainable, data-driven approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The product of more than seven years of scientific and community R&D and underpinned by its Global Database of Humanity, Diversity Atlas gives organisations a nuanced, multifactorial understanding of their workforce’s rich cultural diversity and experiences. This ensures that each individual is acknowledged in all their multidimensional aspects.
Diversity Atlas is aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and has been adopted by leading multinationals and organisations across the world, including supply-chain firm PSA BDP, global technology company Automatic Data Processing Inc (ADP), Amazon Web Services (AWS), Global Victoria, the Perth Festival and many others.
