Ethnic Diversity is an ongoing effort, not just one topic among many for Cecil Adams. His ability to transform multifaceted ethnic diversity and inclusion concepts into understanding and acceptance have enabled Cecil to help organizations intentionally create and sustain inclusive workplace ethnic diversity. Whether through keynotes, workshops, or organizational consulting, Cecil partners with clients to help them build effective relationships that leverage ethnic diversity to increase inclusion, acceptance, innovation, employee engagement, customer satisfaction and bottom-line results.

Cecil understands that Ethnocentrism, Racism and Institutional Racism are delicate subjects to address. Therefore, Cecil addresses these topics in his Workshop in a non-threatening manner that creates enlightenment, better understanding and increases acceptance of ethnic diversity. The Workshop is 1 and a-half hours, allowing for a 10-minute recess and a lot of time for interaction and questions. Cecil's Workshop is not a lecture! The cost is $300.00 for local Workshops within 50 miles of La Crosse, Wisconsin. Costs for extended locations; for example, Madison, Wisconsin, is $500.00.
