As the dramatic shift to a highly diverse workforce continues, organizations large and small know they must do a better job of helping all workers understand and capitalize on differences. The cultural backgrounds and experiences of diverse employees and customers deeply enrich an organization—making it more innovative and globally competitive. In fact, according to Josh Bersin Research, inclusive companies are 1.7 times more likely to be innovation leaders in their market. And, in line with findings from Boston Consulting Group, companies that have more diverse management teams earn 19% more revenue. Join us for this 3.5-hour interactive seminar to inspire and ensure organizational awareness and cultural competence.
Realizing the benefits of diversity means meeting the challenges of self-assessment and commitment to cultural awareness, diversity and inclusivity. This seminar is designed to help individuals identify levels of cultural competence in themselves and their organizations. Employees, managers, directors and project leaders, regional and area managers, directors and vice-presidents, business owners, HR managers, supervisors, their teams and organizations will benefit from this training.
