These academic training while living in Alabama for 28 years as a Malaysian Indian American, and fluent in three languages, and growing up in the multicultural and multi-religious nation has opened an amazing and exciting pathway as a trainer to the world of diversity, especially in the healthcare industry for him. He has served on various state-level committees in Alabama and he served as the Suicide Prevention Task Force of Alabama at the Division of Social Work, Health Disparities Advisory Council at the Division of Minority Health, and Obesity Prevention Task Force at the Bureau of Family Affairs. He is part of the Diversity Nashville, assisting in the Diversity Bus Tours.

His journey as a diversity trainer began in college. He attended the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) training and eventually became their train the trainer. Upon completion of his undergraduate in Psychology focusing on Social Psychology, he served as the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s (UAB) campus director for NCBI serving as the University’s diversity training in various departments.

UAB’s large medical school presented opportunities to develop and train diversity awareness, and cultural sensitivities and competencies over the years to develop and train their range of medical staff including their incoming foreign graduate medical students. He has trained groups as big as 300 people at State level conferences to as small as 9 in medical offices.

These experiences allowed him to understand that the concept of race in the diversity universe as an important segment, especially in the United States, however, race is only one component in the wide range of diverse workforce, especially in the healthcare arena. Cultural competencies (i.e. besides varying norms pertaining to religion and languages) along with varying abilities, prior experiences (i.e. veterans), gender identities, sexuality, age and other human experiences and being become challenges in the workplace today. While some of these can present as federal violations, others reduce workforce productivity and morale in a fast diversifying nation.
