NIKE is the world’s leading innovator in athletic footwear, apparel, equipment and accessories.

The UK D&I lead for Nike commissioned GDP to provide coaching in order to ensure the companies D&I objectives were met for one of their key geographies. Farrah’s generalist expertise was enhanced with D&I knowledge information and best in class strategies.


D&I Audit and Executive Coaching

Key Deliverables

This process was initiated with an in-depth review of current competence and then the implementation of a development plan which not only responded to individual needs but reflected the corporate strategy and priorities. This was amended periodically to reflect shifting needs and expectations and also reflect developments in the field of D&I. This process was carried out over a 12 month time period.

As part of this process a series of focus groups were designed and facilitated by GDP as well as review of UK Nike Strategy and D&I collateral. Analysis of the findings both qualitative and quantitative was collated and recommendations for next steps provided.


Analysis of the results of our Audit contributed to the development of a UK wide D&I plan that recognised UK challenges and opportunities but was ultimately aligned with NIKE EMEA D&I Strategy.
