About Us

Architects of Diversity is a non-profit that aims to bridge communities and identity groups among youth in Malaysia for justice, peace and a sustainable future. 

We build spaces that facilitate interpersonal understanding and intergroup relationships through empathy, vulnerability and non-violent communication.

In 2018, AOD started as a United World College Short Course.
