CDuarte PhotoLinking Dreams Global stands for balanced growth and we are passionate about ensuring that the latest developments in technology are used as a force for good in the world.  People should never be harmed just because there are advancements in technology, policy changes or growth.

Linking Dreams Global began as a training, consulting, and program development firm in Prescott, Arizona in 2016. Since our launch, we have worked with businesses and nonprofits throughout the Southwest U.S. and we have received national and global recognition for our work in numerous arenas that include #DEI and #CulturalCompetency. 

In 2020, we expanded our network to include more than 2,500 brand leaders from around the world and we continue to advise Executive Leadership Teams about how to leverage advanced technologies, like artificial intelligence and automation, as a force for good. #AI should only replace the "mundayne" of everyday tasks, but it should never replace human oversight. Removing humans with technology breaks people's trust.

In today's divisive world, it's hard to know who to trust
That's why we put #Ethics at the heart of everything we do to ensure that companies are people-centered.

We consult with a variety of organizations, businesses, and communities to help drive performance and competitieve advantage without sacrificing "community" or a sense of belonging.  

Our approach is unique, refreshingly different, and our solutions always consider fairness and equity for all.

We are about building ALLYSHIP First!

Our mission was to bring a different approach- we create safe and welcoming spaces for everyone to learn and grow.  Cultural Competency should never feel uncomfortable or exclude anyone- even if we have differences of opinion, it's more important to create a safe space that everyone can learn. People need a space where they can share, ask questions, and not feel judged.  For us, it is about making a commitment to do no harm; to learn from our mistakes, and grow from them.  

Love no Hate

Now is not a time to be silent!

We need to be talking about Uniting Communities
and including ALL voices at the table of change!     

As Linking Dreams grows, we continue to partner with a variety consultants, trainers, and brilliant minds to help organizations around the world, be more consious about how they serve and include their customers, clients, employees, and or anyone they interact or do business with.
