Our leadership came together from the corporate world with a shared goal of helping employers celebrate diversity and difference – and a model that blends social impact and proven business tactics for inclusive work environments that mobilize the potential of individuals, and builds teams. Our team applies practical expertise, the latest thinking on organizational and behavioural issues, and best practices to address issues of diversity and inclusion for the national and regional realities of Canada.

Led by Michael Bach, CCDI founder and subject expert on workplace diversity, equity and inclusion; this team of accomplished professionals brings a valuable set of skills, knowledge and experience for diversity programming that has an impact on workplaces.
