Meet Our Diversity Trainers and Consultants
Diversity Builder’s trainers and consultants facilitate dynamic experiential classes that use industry-specific real life exercises to produce optimal learning outcomes.
“When learners see the workplace from others’ perspectives and set actionable diversity goals, true change begins in their work culture. Our trainers’ engaging facilitation approach encourages a high level of participation and accelerates progress in building a culture of inclusion.”
Each Diversity Builder trainer brings a unique set of life experiences, expertise and passion for inclusion into each workshop.
