Diamond Strategies hosts Culture Quest for aspiring and established leaders.

Thomas McDonald of Brophy College Preparatory, and Anastacia Whitaker of Xavier College Preparatory in Phoenix, discuss the ways in which diversity and cultural competency fuel innovation.

On Saturday, June 24th, Diamond Strategies hosted its “Understanding Culture and Building Community” Culture Quest for aspiring and established leaders.  Held in the new and centrally located CityScape office tower, our Culture Quests are premier and intimate diversity, equity, and inclusion training opportunities for students, administrators, employees, managers, executives, and thought leaders, in the government, non-profit, corporate, education, and healthcare sectors.

Culture Quests were forged to offer organizations and community members robust explorations into the history and life of various peoples and related DEI matters at times that compliment their busy schedule.  Designed for individuals and organizations that wish to become culturally competent and up-to-speed with the most advanced knowledge in several thematic areas, Culture Quests are your opportunity to learn from top scholars and practitioners in familiar, intimate, and convenient settings.

Attendees enhance their knowledge base, expand their horizons, and increase their ability to lead and become architects of positive change as a result of the knowledge and cultural skill set Culture Quests help to advance.
