ABOUT US

The Diversity Advancement Network is a global initiative that celebrates, unites and empowers all people for the good of society. At DAN, we create unique philanthropic opportunities to celebrate success stories while providing solutions to common issues in marginalized communities, through workshops and mentorship programs.

Our primary objective is to facilitate programs that can bring people together while promoting literacy, development, diversity, and inclusion. We have held several forums and executed projects to benefit women, youths, and seniors. We also celebrate and empower professionals, as we partner with stakeholders to transform our world for the better. 

Diversity Advancement Network is a nonprofit organization with its headquarters in Canada and chapters in over 30 countries. Some of our flagship initiatives have made lots of impact, and are now operating as agencies of DAN. The Global Women Leadership Forum, Canada CEO Forum, Black Women Awards, Black Canadian Awards, Caribbean Women Honors & Empowerment, African CEO Summit, and a few others are platforms that originated from the Diversity Advancement Network.

Our yearly goal is to exceed 100 impactful activities worldwide, and we are committed to building a legacy of excellence for generations to come.

À PROPOS DE NOUS

Le réseau pour la promotion de la diversité est une initiative mondiale qui célèbre, unit et responsabilise toutes les personnes pour le bien de la société. Chez DAN, nous créons des opportunités philanthropiques uniques pour célébrer les réussites tout en apportant des solutions aux problèmes communs des communautés marginalisées, par le biais d’ateliers et de programmes de mentorat.

Notre objectif principal est de faciliter les programmes qui peuvent réunir les gens tout en favorisant l’alphabétisation, le développement, la diversité et l’inclusion. Nous avons exécuté des projets au profit des femmes, des jeunes et des personnes âgées. Nous responsabilisons également les professionnels, en partenariat avec les parties prenantes, afin de transformer notre monde pour le meilleur. 

Diversity Advancement Network est un organisme à but non lucratif dont le siège social est au Canada et qui a des sections dans plus de 30 pays. Certaines de nos initiatives phares ont eu beaucoup d’impact et fonctionnent maintenant en tant qu’agences de DAN. Le Global Women Leadership Forum, le Canada CEO Forum, les Black Women Awards, les Black Canadian Awards, Caribbean women honors &empowerment, le African CEO Summit et quelques autres sont des plateformes issues du Diversity Advancement Network.

Notre objectif annuel est de dépasser 100 activités dans le monde et de créer un héritage d’excellence.
