Diamond Companies Limited, the parent company to various brands focusing on the empowerment of women, aims to empower and develop women by engaging in acts of community service, self-awareness and networking. Diamond Companies encompasses both for-profit and non-profit sectors.
“Currently, we are focusing on our ‘Ladies Night Out’ initiative where we take the concept of a ladies night and create a space for women from all walks of life where we gather on a set evening with food, conversation, networking, and uplifting,” says Dayona Turner, CEO and Founder of Diamond Companies Limited. Turner has had her focus on the engagement of people from all walks of life and backgrounds. She has a strong passion for building youth and women.
“Motivated by own life experiences and the experiences of others, I developed this brand to serve women in more ways than one,” Turner explains, adding that her educational background is a bachelors in Sociology and Psychology, a Master of Arts in Human Services and she is currently completing her Doctorate in Educational Leadership.
The concept of Diamond Companies came to Turner when she began to reflect on her personal life experiences, and how a Diamond’s journey of development and discovery is similar to her own.
“When we think of a diamond, we think of the process that it goes through; to the core of a diamond its carbon, the heat is turned up and then there is intense pressure, at the end of the process the diamond rise to the surface to cool,” says Turner. “So is the same with the human experience. We go through life experiencing the heat and intensity of our journey but after that experiences we rise to the surface with more value than what we may have started with.”
The mission of Diamond Companies is to maintain a solutions-oriented enterprise where they empower and develop women by engaging them in acts of self-awareness, community service, and networking. Diamond Companies strives to provide strategic consulting services for individuals, business, corporations, non profits, and more.
“What makes us unique is that when we come together, we solve problems. Our women not only get the chance to network with one another but when we are together, we are strategizing about life, family, and business,” Turner explains, adding that her participants leave with solutions, as they not only address life’s experiences, but also find ways to overcome, enhance, and build on life to become the best individuals they can be.
Turner says she is currently in the process of expanding into creating a staffing agency. “By creating a sound business model for an employment agency, we can develop and grow the economy of our city and providing capable individuals with opportunities for employment,” she explains, adding that the agency will specialize in assisting women and youth, but they will provide opportunities for everyone.
