Cultural Intelligence or Cultural Quotient (CQ) is having the capacity to relate and work effectively with different groups of people, and across cultures (including Big-C “Culture” and little-c “culture”). Cultural intelligence goes beyond cultural awareness and political correctness. It articulates the core competencies and skill sets necessary for true diversity and inclusion within your organization. It provides tools to help develop your leaders and team members and give them a firm foundation in the understanding of CQ. This module will examine the various elements of cultural intelligence and how to operationalize it in an organization.
Developing Language of CI – Building a Living Glossary
Understanding diversity, equity and inclusion in the post-2020 world requires a new language, and a new vocabulary communicated through the lens of cultural intelligence. This language reflects a judgment-free perspective which serves to bring different groups of people together through common understanding, and appreciation of the lived experience of others. This module will educate the participants on the common language of DEI to create common understanding, and common connections among divergent groups of people within an organization.
Understanding Implicit Bias Through the Lens of CI
All human beings operate with varying degrees of implicit bias. Implicit bias are unintended preferences of people which have the ability to adversely impact the effective operations of any organization. This module will explore the various types of implicit bias, micro-behaviors, and the proper ways to address, and resolve issues that arise from this mindset.
How to Create Sustainable Change
High performing organizations are not only focusing on the diversity of its workforce, but also on how that workforce reflects a culture of equity and inclusion. Inclusion addresses how well the organization shares power, access, and resources within all elements of the workforce- particularly those elements which represent marginalized and/or underrepresented groups of the organization. This module will discuss effective ways in which organizations may become more inclusive.
Managing Conflict Through the Lens of Equity
When organizations commence the DEI journey of transformation, there will be conflict and communication “breakdowns”. You will face barriers on the journey to creating an inclusive organization. This module supports people and organizations in managing expectations for success and provides tools and resources for navigating conflict with individuals, and groups of people and organizations.
Mastering the Art of Crucial Conversations
Despite technological advances of our modern civilization, humans have an even greater challenge than ever before for maintaining effective communication. In this training module, you will learn new skills to create greater connectivity and meaningful collaboration among team members. We will address and provide tools for how to effectively communicate with others utilizing understanding and awareness, and how to navigate difficult, but crucial topics and conversations through the lens of emotional and cultural intelligence.
DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) Panel
