In my 13+ years of experience in HR, I have seen a lot of presentations on diversity and harassment. Orlando-Ward & Associates' ability to keep our leadership's attention and bring home important messages through uniquely engaging, informative and interactive methods make this presentation by far the best I have ever seen.

What People Are Saying

"The work of Orlando-Ward & Associates is incredibly effective. They don't dabble in organization development theory or play the guru. They work closely with your organization to learn your culture thoroughly; and then reflect it back in truly powerful ways, without pointing fingers. I can truly say they proved invaluable in helping us open the door to major organizational change – far faster than I ever thought possible."

— M. Lutchen, Senior Partner, Former CIO
