Workplace Diversity Services

To succeed in today’s globalised and multicultural business world, organisations of all types should make diversity in their workforce a business imperative. Organisations whose workforces reflect the communities in which they operate report better stakeholder relations and increased innovation and productivity. Leveraging different perspectives across your workforce helps you to stay connected with today’s rapidly transforming client bases and to access new and emerging markets. LCD’s workplace diversity programs will help your organisation build a workforce that welcomes and celebrates diversity and maximises the business benefits of a diverse and culturally competent workforce.

Our workplace diversity services have been designed through international partnerships with noted thought leaders and trainers in the cultural intelligence field, including David Clive Price PhD, London based cultural intelligence mentor, author of Bamboo Strong: Cultural Intelligence Secrets to Succeed in the New Global Economy and official Adviser to League Cultural Diplomacy, Susan Salzbrenner, Copenhagen based CEO and Head of Consulting at Fit Across Cultures and author of Play Abroad 101Patti McCarthy, Melbourne based Director of Cultural Chemistry and author of Cultural Chemistry: Simple Strategies for Bridging Cultural Gaps and Anna Ridgway, Director of InterMondo Cultural Consulting in Melbourne Australia.
