In Diversity Education

We are diversity education experts.

Cultural Connections by Design (CCBD) is a diversity education consulting company. We employ creative, innovative, and “out of the box” processes to support organizations in creating an inclusive culture of belonging – a culture that accepts, values, and views strength in differences. Our process centers around the notion that knowledge is power. Power, when used responsibly, creates transformative change. Individuals forge personal and professional breakthroughs using our proprietary learning tools which empower them to create innovative change within their organization.

CCBD works with a vast array of clients, including academic institutions, health care organizations, government agencies, non-profit and corporate organizations.
