A new non profit has recently been established to help companies increase the diversity of their Executive Leadership Team to achieve higher earnings and ROI. The company is GBMD (Give Back Make A Difference, Inc.), and its objective is to develop High Potential Students and Professionals that go beyond Middle Management and reach their Executive Suite Aspirations. They do this by providing High Impact Leadership Training, and an Ability to Leverage Cultural Values, Uniqueness, others’ Social Biases and Retiree Experiences. GBMD believes in equality for all, and do not support policies that provide preferential treatment to specific groups, such as affirmative action.
Their focus on social biases differs from discrimination in that social biases are prejudicial beliefs, whereas discrimination refers to prejudicial behavior. There are laws to protect people from discrimination, and organizations that are helping to eradicate it, but there’s not on social biases. GBMD believes that social biases will always exist, and therefore, to reach one’s full potential, it is to everyone’s benefit to address them.
Philip Wah is Founder and President/CEO of GBMD. After retiring from 30 years of successfully managing small and large profit driven organizations, he is fulfilling his passion to help others grow and succeed. Having been raised with Asian cultural values, Mr. Wah was fortunate to take leadership training that focused on the importance of social biases in the corporate environment. This was the single most important training that he received throughout his career, and he wants others to have this same opportunity. With a desire to make a positive enduring affect on people’s lives, GBMD’s relationships with individuals extend through most of their life, from high school thru their early years of retirement.
GBMD is seeking others that are inspired to give back and make a difference in other’s lives. There is no better joy in life, than giving.
