Cultivating a work environment characterized by cultural competence is critical for success in the modern business environment. Today’s workforce is more diverse now than it has ever been in the past, and is likely to continue to become more and more diverse in the future. Organizations and individual professionals are well-served by striving to create inclusive work environments where diversity is truly welcomed and people are valued because of their unique contributions and individual differences – not in spite of them. Cultural competence is the key.
Join this informative session by expert speaker Mary Gormandy White and learn about the key dimensions of diversity that impact the workplace and discover what it truly means to foster an inclusive workplace through emphasizing and developing cultural competence. This session will cover key statistics, challenges and barriers to cultural competence, along with a practical framework you can use to become more culturally competent on both an individual and an organizational level.
