In 2013, the National MultiCultural Institute took its mission of bringing diversity and inclusion awareness across national borders by becoming the International MultiCultural Institute (iMCI). As a member of NMCI’s faculty for over 20 years, Steven Rivelis, Campaign Consultation CEO, provided strategic assessment and communication intervention to assist iMCI in broadening its outreach efforts on an international scale. These initiatives highlighted iMCI’s position as a leader in global education, training, innovation, advocacy, and research for international matters of diversity and inclusion.
Among the trainings that Steven Rivelis provided for NMCI was the co-facilitation of a Training of Trainers/Facilitators (TOT/F) session, sponsored by Microsoft, at the National MultiCultural Institute’s Diversity Leadership Conference [November 2010].
