About Bill Proudman

Bill Proudman is CEO and co-founder of Whtie Men as Full Diversity Partners.  He is a sought after speaker and workshop presenter and consultant.  He pioneered white male only workshops in the mid-90s after repeatedly noticing that white male leaders disengaged from diversity efforts. His provocative work seeded the creation of White Men As Full Diversity Partners, an organization that guides leaders to a place of deeper understanding and awareness, heightened cultural competence and transformative and courageous leadership. For over 35 years, he has served as a consultant, coach and facilitator to countless companies and organizations on issues of team effectiveness, cultural competence, and diversity and leadership development. He is the founder of the Experiential Training and Development Alliance, a trade association for experiential training and development consulting firms, and was twice president of the Association for Experiential Education. He is also co-author of a three-volume field guide on diversity partnerships and a regular blogger on MARC, Men Advocating Real Change, an online community sponsored by Catalyst.
