Founding Director

Dr. Kwesi Ewoodzie is a Ghanaian-American interculturalist, scholar and researcher, and a professional-development facilitator who promotes intercultural understanding through travel and training. He brings with him decades of life experiences as a third-culture kid, about 10 years of engaging in international education that culminated in a Ph.D. in Sociology, and 6 years of promoting global understanding and international travel. Since 2013, CBB has served as the medium through which the skills and knowledge he has gained as a scholar and interculturalist can be of service to the members of his global community.

Dr. Ewoodzie’s life has been infused with all things intercultural. He received an undergraduate education at Ithaca College as an MLK Jr. Scholar, which further defined him as a social-justice-minded global citizen. In 2017, he completed his Ph.D. from University of Iowa, focusing on Organization and Culture, during which he served as president of the Society of Black Graduate and Professional Students.

His love of traveling has taken him to 6 continents and he has conducted sociological research in Ghana, Spain, Costa Rica, and Morocco. Additionally, he is certified in intercultural communication training from the Intercultural Communication Institute.

The global community he passionately serves consists of African Diaspora groups, international education facilitators, social activists, and all globally-minded groups and organizations around the world. “It is through service that we can pay back the individuals and communities that have helped us grow, as well as empower and inspire social change in this generation and the next!”
