Mauricio A. Velásquez, MBA
President, CEO – The Diversity Training Group
Mauricio Velásquez is the President of The Diversity Training Group (DTG) in Herndon, VA. Mauricio serves as a diversity trainer, sexual harassment prevention trainer, executive coach, mentoring trainer, expert witness, and assists organizations with multicultural marketing, selling, and customer service.
Mauricio has a BA in Economics and Psychology (double major) from the University of Virginia and an MBA from the George Washington University in Human Resource Management. DTG’s clients include small and large, public and private, not for and for profit organizations. A partial list includes Arbitron, US Navy (Surgeon General and JAG), NIST, Council for Institutional Investors, NEA, SEIU, Nice-Pak, Thompson Coburn, Van Ness Feldman, Quest Diagnostics, and the National PTA. Past clients include Black & Decker, Hewlett Packard, Visa USA, Merrill Lynch and even the White House.
Mauricio has trained in every state but North Dakota and his life and work has taken him to more than 70 countries and most recently work with the US Navy took him Italy, Spain, Japan and coming up shortly Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Mauricio has trained more than a half million executives, managers, supervisors and employees in his career and some of his most memorable work has been with the White House, Native American tribes, law enforcement and the military.
Mauricio really enjoys working with “militant or highly resistant audiences” – folks who don’t think they need diversity training. Also, Mauricio all too often is hired to do “rescue diversity training” – another diversity trainer had done some work before and blew the place apart – polarizing the place. Mauricio is brought in to heal and unify and bring the place back together.
