    About the DRI

    The Diversity Research Institute creates sustainable business growth by advancing diversity and inclusion (D&I) knowledge and practice. Our distinct orientation to praxis—the production of organizational practices from academic theories and ideas of diversity—allows us to harmonize local and global demands for inclusion, while setting standards for long-lasting social and economic change

    The DRI functions across three distinct platforms:
    Diversity Research Institute Journal
    DRI Select Consulting Services
    DRI Membership

  • DRI Journal

    Orlando Richard, University of Texas, Dallas
    Robyn Berkley, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville

    The DRI Journal is a venue for business and academic collaboration with aims to advance the knowledge of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. As an open access journal, distinctly, its scope is to impact organizational and business practice by making knowledge and research available within and beyond academic institutions. The DRIJ explores themes that include, but are not limited to: organizational development, corporate governance, talent management, employee engagement, and corporate social responsibility.

    The DRI Journal is soliciting manuscripts for the Inaugural Edition.
