"Diversity on a Deadline: Bringing Diversity and Inclusion to the 2012 Olympic Games"
With less than 800 days until the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympic Games, Stephen Frost has a huge job overseeing the diversity and inclusion efforts of LOCOG. He will share with meeting participants the approach they are taking on the enormous task to ensure diversity and inclusion in the workforce, in procurement and in service delivery. Inculcating diversity within the world's biggest event is incredibly complex and demanding, and Stephen will speak about how he is working to amass as much support as possible to reinforce and communicate the systems that ensure London's legacy in staging the most diverse Games ever in 2012 and setting new standards for inclusion.
During his stay in Washington, Stephen will be honored as the winner of the 2010 ORC Peter Robertson Award. The award will be presented to Mr. Frost by Jacqueline A. Berrien, Chair of the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The reception will be hosted by Christopher Metzler, PhD, Associate Dean of Human Resources for the Masters of Professional Studies at Georgetown University.
"The ORC Peter Robertson Award recognizes those unsung heroes who demonstrate a personal and professional commitment to the value that diversity and equality bring to their organizations and communities,” said Patrice Hall, who leads Mercer’s ORC Networks Global Equality, Diversity and Inclusion practice. “Mr. Frost has worked tirelessly in the areas of disability, age, and gay and lesbian rights and successfully collaborated with community and industry groups for the benefit of those who are economically disadvantaged. He has an entrepreneurial style that breaks down boundaries and enables real change, even in unreceptive environments.”
The FGG will be represented at the reception by Brent Minor, former co-president and leader of FGG member orgnaization Team DC.
