Our Diversity and Workplace Trainers and Consultants
The Diversity Builder team trainers emanate from different countries, cultural, educational, and minority backgrounds, equipping them to deliver a cohesive diversity curriculum.

Several of our trainers have earned doctorate or master’s degrees and some have law degrees. Our trainers and consultants have worked with various clients in the areas of diversity and inclusion, harassment and hostile work environment prevention, discrimination prevention, conflict resolution, change management, and team development. Our trainers’ experience in these areas includes numerous class facilitations with publicly traded companies, banking and financial institutions, technology, government entities, educational institutions, and non-profit organizations. Diversity Builder trainers facilitate classes in Spanish, French, English, and Greek.
Results-Focused Workplace Training Using Experiential Learning
Diversity Builder’s immersive training programs utilize an experiential training facilitation approach that raises engagement and active learning. Our proprietary training method incorporates relevant real-life scenarios, case studies, open dialogue, self-assessments, and development plans. Our immersive programs use customized interactive learning exercises to elevate employees from awareness to functional application. Effective communication, inclusion, and leadership activities are designed for concept reinforcement. Learning activities include open discussion, case studies, gamification, blended solutions, self-assessments and evaluation, and role-playing. Relevant learning exercises designed specifically for the department will be developed and included in each course.
Post-Training Consulting and Support
Diversity Builder provides post-training support to our clients. Our trainers and consultants believe that integrating diversity extends beyond the initial training sessions. Initial internal cultural assessment and facilitated training are often the first steps to toward inclusion. Our trainers offer tools to continue the conversation as well as resources, reference materials to ensure organizations are equipped to continue the process of building an inclusive environment. Incorporating diversity workshops, diversity assessment and development tools, diversity policies, role models, one-on-one sessions, and other strategies help companies build a thriving diverse workplace and inclusive culture. Our trainers and consultants are available for consulting following the initial training or cultural assessment.
