iD is a collaborative community with members of all backgrounds who inspire, empower, and elevate each other to achieve career goals.
When you aim, aim high. When you look ahead, look as far as your imagination takes you. But no matter how lofty our ambitions, we all face challenges that are not in our control; only by sharing with each other our experiences can we actually gain the most from our experiences and help others to succeed.
What Inspiring Diversity (“iD”) aims to achieve is a community for professional talent of all backgrounds to come find inspiration, guidance, and a better focus on their goals. This is a place for people with illuminating stories to share them as a way to help others succeed and to be more visible for opportunities to achieve our goals. A place for companies seeking a new way to better find and develop talent from diverse backgrounds, as well as understand the perspectives and contributions such talent brings to the table. A place for you.
In this day and age, despite many milestones, a professional community that celebrates and supports diversity seems much more necessary than ever before. Together, let's inspire, empower and elevate each other - regardless of our respective backgrounds. Let's experience the fulfillment that comes from helping others to succeed and from living by the P.O.L.I.N.G.® principles (Priorities; Others; Lead; Inspire; Network; and Grow) as we build our iD community.
It all began with a desire to tell the story of revolutionary social worker Ms. Po-Ling Ng, and the realization that her name stood for something equally special.
In 2015, Inspiring Diversity (iD) Founder Betty Ng came to the realization that each letter of her mother's name - Po-Ling - encapsulated important principles of success and impact. P(riorities); O(thers); L(ead); I(nspire); N(etwork); G(row) are words that serve as a foundation for iD and the P.O.L.I.N.G.® framework illustrates powerful principles that should be considered in conveying stories of impact and success at interviews and public speaking at large.
