WEBINAR: Creating Cultural Competence in the Workplace

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 the norm and people are valued because of their unique contributions and individual differences – not in spite of them. Cultural competence is the key.
