Co-Founder and CEO, WMFDP LLC | FDP Global

Bill Proudman pioneered workshops for white men in the mid-90s after repeatedly noticing that white male leaders disengaged from diversity efforts. His provocative work led to the founding of WMFDP, with the firm’s focus on guiding leaders to a place of deeper understanding and awareness, heightened cultural competence, and transformative and courageous leadership.

WMFDP is based in Portland, Oregon with almost 15 staff and 35 consultants. Some of the firm’s clients include BAE, S&P Global, Abbvie, Mass Mutual, Applied Materials, National Hockey League, Parexel, P&G, Engie and Amazon Web Services. For over 40 years, Bill has served as a consultant, coach and facilitator on issues of team effectiveness, cultural competence, diversity, inclusion and equity and leadership development.

Bill is also the co-author of a three-volume field guide on diversity partnerships. He 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.
