Quoting a participant from a workshop recently presented by Robert Principe, "I have heard Robert speak to senior HR executives on the topic of how organizations can effectively position the work of diversity and inclusion as a core element of their ability to remain innovative and competitive. His passion for the work and his expertise on the subject is highly informative and engaging." Robert has a combined thirteen years of experience functioning as a Diversity and Inclusion Manager at the Director’s level, during which time he developed a keen ability to effectively engage all internal stakeholders. He was directly responsible for the full scope of diversity and inclusion work including assessment of organizational culture, strategic planning, oversight of support mechanisms for workforce diversity, cultural competency development, and the research, design, and facilitation of related training and programming. Robert has also worked with a broad range of clients (non-profits, for-profits, state agencies, schools and colleges) providing consultation, and designing and facilitating effective training programs tailored to address their most pressing leadership, organizational, and workforce issues.
