Organizations around the globe are paying more attention to diversity and inclusion. Organizations realize that diversity is essential to attain their desired goals. Without inclusion fostered by multiculturalism and diversity, organizations cannot evolve and assure their success. The IADC is no exception.

The experts in the area of creating and sustaining diversity and inclusion in organizations recognize that the path to inclusion is long and at times difficult. The IADC has been on the path of diversity and inclusion for a number of years and has made good strides. Nevertheless, there is more work to do to make sure that the inclusion of everyone is a "given" in the IADC.

The IADC's membership has grown considerably since its beginning in 1920. We now have more than 2,500 members located in more than 50 countries and territories. Our membership is more diverse and inclusive than when I joined the IADC in 1990. Our leadership continues to become more inclusive and representative of our entire membership, welcoming new leaders regardless of their gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, age, or geographical location.

Our Board of Directors is committed to developing expanded continuing education and professional networking opportunities in Asia to incorporate our Asian members into the fabric of the IADC.

Likewise, our annual Regional Meetings in Latin America have increased our membership from several countries in Latin America. In March 2018, our Regional Meeting was held in Lima, Peru and members from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Peru were in attendance for an excellent half-day program and an enjoyable networking reception and dinner the evening before.

Many of our new members from Latin America and Asia are eager to become involved in the work of the IADC. The leadership of the IADC is focused on making certain that all of our new members who seek to become active in the IADC are given every opportunity to advance within the IADC and to know that they are included in the many activities of our Association. …
