Filed under: Uncategorized — Staff @ 9:27 pm


Washington, DC – Dr. Christopher J.  Metzler, Associate Dean of Georgetown University’s Master of Professional Studies in Human Resources Management program, has recently announced his partnership with Usher’s New Look Foundation. As educational partner, Dr. Metzler’s role will include analyzing the assessment and educational outcomes models that the Foundation uses to track competencies and development within the four pillars of talent, education, career and service that are central to the New Look Leadership Academy. He will be evaluating the models to ensure their efficacy and validity.

His ongoing role will include interpreting evidence to determine how well performance matches those expectations and standards; and using the resulting information to document, explain and improve performance of the New Look Academy.

Dr. Metzler is a world-renowned expert on diversity and inclusion across industries and sectors, as well as an evidence-based researcher who has pioneered standards, practices and competencies for diversity and human capital professionals.  Prior to joining Georgetown University, Metzler developed and administered the Diversity Management program for diversity professionals at Cornell University’s ILR School. Before entering higher education, he led the strategic issues and research practice at an international consulting firm. He has consulted with multinational corporations and governments on human rights, human capital, equality, corporate social responsibility, discrimination and diversity.

Usher’s New Look Foundation was established by Raymond Usher IV in 1999. The foundation consists of four programs:  Powered By Service, the New Look Leadership Academy, Moguls In Training and the World Leadership Conference. The goal of these programs is to set the gold standard in leadership development and success for the youth generation.
