Why I Do What I Do

The reason I passionately specialize in teaching empowering leadership principles and understanding diversity in the workplace is because I have experienced and seen firsthand how effective leadership and creating a culture of teamwork can change the dynamics of companies corporately and lives individually. I also understand that in order to fulfill optimal results in diverse workplace environments; we have to be taught how to uncover our own blind spots when it comes to unconscious bias and how to turn them into positive benefits both corporately and individually.  

What Makes DeWayne Owens Special To Speak on Workplace Diversity?

DeWayne Owens learned firsthand as a child growing up as a military dependent, the value of cultural diversity from a global perspective. As a “military brat” he grew up socially in communities of multi-cultural backgrounds both in the U.S. and abroad. His family resided on military bases during the duration of his father’s stint in the U.S. Air Force and It was only when DeWayne attended public schools outside of military bases that he began to experience social segregation and the ugliness of prejudices and unconscious bias’. Growing up in an era of evolving social change and having held leadership and supervisory positions in multi-cultural corporations over the last 20 years, he grew to understand the important need for multi-cultural education and understanding in the U.S. workforce.
