Better Understanding

Multicultural Diversity


Today’s employees are driven to excel by respect and an understanding of their background. At ECCO we know this. The “golden rule” is not enough. It’s not enough to treat people how you want to be treated. At ECCO we apply the “platinum rule” – treat people as they want to be treated. You can accomplish this within your established business disciplines and philosophies.

Since 1989 we have been helping organizations and Fortune 500 companies with their multicultural and diversity needs. We offer:

  • Comprehensive services for our clients at any stage of diversity inclusiveness.
  • A wide variety of learning techniques are utilized so interventions can be customized to suit each client’s needs.
  • Assessments and tools to measure employee and organization effectiveness related to diversity, equity and inclusion.

Our Guiding Diversity Principles

At ECCO International, we believe that corporate diversity efforts are:

Driven from the top

Successful corporate diversity programs need buy-in from all levels in your hierarchy.

Positive Opportunities

Designed to be a non-shaming/non-blaming educational process that focuses on individual workplace behavior.

Long-Term Strategy

A strategic process, not just a check-off activity or corporate program.


Fully Inclusive

No exceptions to the rule.


Promoted internally through learning events, change opportunities, and interventions.

The SMART Thing

Quite simply, the smart business thing to do to impact innovation and organizational culture.
