Douglas is known for helping churches create and sustain multicultural congregations, where diversity is valued and embraced. He has worked with institutions and corporations, assisting them in fulfilling their mission of positioning themselves where they can gain competitive advantage in the work force and to achieve bottom line success by creating a work environment where tolerance, respect, acceptance and collaboration are valued and, from coalitions of interest rather than coalitions of color or race, help to create an EPIC (empower, productive, inclusive, collaborative) organization. He will enable your organization to be aware and sensitive to the difference between affirmative action, equal employment opportunities, sexual harassment and diversity in the work force.
Douglas has written extensively on the subject of diversity and multiculturalism. He received his training at McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Andrews University, Berrien Springs, Michigan, and London University, London, England.
He has lectured on other subjects such as world religions, church history and postmodernism in Africa, Australia, Europe, Latin America, North America, India and the Caribbean.
