Making Immigration Work
for All Americans -- Making Diversity
a Source of Shared Strength
Diversity Dynamics offers training
and consulting services in a range of areas, with particular attention to the challenges and opportunities associated
with immigration to the United States in the 21st century.
Our work is based on the belief that immigration can be a continuing source of innovation, renewal,
and prosperity for all Americans, but only if our leaders -- whether in government, business, education, philanthropy, or
the nonprofit sector -- adhere to values of equality and inclusiveness and follow policies designed to promote the integration
of immigrants into local communities.
to the 2020 report of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), there are roughly 272 million migrants world-wide,
comprising 3.5 percent of the world's population, set in motion by the three "D's" of development, demography, and
Although mobility has largely
ground to a halt during the panedemic, most signs point to further increases in human mobility in the years ahead, with
impacts beyond traditional countries and areas of immigrant settlement. Although one could argue whether there is too much
or too little immigration, the real question, according to the IOM, is quite different. "International migration is an
established feature of contemporary economic, social and political life, driven by unstoppable forces of globalization and
demography...the real question is how to manage migration for the benefit of all."
Created in 2006, Diversity Dynamics offers customized solutions to the problems faced by organizations working to adapt to ethnic and cultural
change. We identify best practices and translate cutting edge research into practical solutions, bridging the academic and
policy worlds. Effective interventions require not only specialized knowledge but also the ability to work with, and learn
from, people from diverse cultural and lingusitic backgrounds and to involve them in the research and decision-making process.
Diversity Dynamics builds on the experience of generations of Americans who
have toiled to create a welcoming and cosmopolitan society. Through trial and error, we have learned how to make diversity
work for all Americans. As we witness the tragic toll of intergroup hatred and hostility around the world, and even regrettably
in our own country, we must recommit to the values and practices that have made the country an example and an inspiration
to the rest of the world.
Let us help you achieve your diversity-related goals.
Remember that when you say
"I will have none of this exile
and this stranger for his face
is not like my face
and his speech is
you have denied America with that word.
