Building Bridges in Global Diversity


Course Number: DEI-104

Duration: 0.5 days (3.25 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

Global Diversity Overview

We live in a global market economy. Companies span continents and thus cross-cultural communication is essential to success. Numerous studies highlight the increased value that diversity of thought, experience, identity, and culture bring to organizations. To succeed in global expansion necessitates cultural understanding and mastering techniques to bridge cultural gaps.

Continuing this series, Building Bridges in Global Diversity is an introduction for companies that are expanding into the global marketplace and want to get it right the first time. Avoid common mistakes and unintentional pitfalls that come with expansion and navigating cultural differences. This course will enlighten, support, and explore this process. It will include resources, materials, and tools to prepare your company or organization for the open global market.

Championing global diversity in the workplace by crafting partnerships with a culture of inclusion and respect for mutual interests will also require internal workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion. These steps ultimately maximize employee productivity, satisfaction, and retention.

Too often companies are reluctant to adopt the work of DEI, fearing the process may become rooted in blame and upheaval. This DEI course is centered in the six “C’s” Compassionate, Courageous, Candid, Committed, Creative Change Agents. The focus is upon growth, learning, and transformation and a recognition that challenges can be a catalyst for change and growth
