Bill Proudman

Founding Partner and CEO, White Men as Full Diversity Partners

Bill Proudman pioneered workshops for men in the mid-90s after repeatedly noticing that male leaders disengaged from diversity efforts. His provocative work led to the firm’s focus on guiding leaders to a place of deeper understanding and awareness, heightened cultural competence, and transformative and courageous leadership. The firm’s clients include Dell, Novartis, Lockheed Martin, Sodexo and P&G.

For over 35 years, Bill has served as a consultant, coach and facilitator on issues of team effectiveness, cultural competence, diversity, and leadership
development. He is also co-author of a three-volume field guide on diversity partnerships. Bill leads our international client work, developing and leading learning in Japan, China, Singapore, India, Australia, UK, Germany, Belgium, France, Spain, Egypt, The Netherlands, Poland, UAE and Morocco. Bill is working toward the day when all people view a diverse and inclusive work environment as vital to maintaining a company’s competitive edge and is in everyone’s self-interest.
