Cross-Cultural Conversations

A Series of Dialogues for More Equitable Communities

The more diverse an organization is, the more productive it will be. 

  • Having a better understanding of our personal cultural experience as well as that of our colleagues and clientele will lead to more cohesion and greater effectiveness in our interactions
  • With improved communication and understanding about cultural differences, staff will be better equipped to connect in a more productive manner with others

Why would this be of value? 

This Workshop Is Designed To;

  • Improve Productivity and Effectiveness 
  • Improve Communication and Public Relations Within Staff and the Clientele You Serve 
  • Improve Cohesion in the Workplace 
  • Help diffuse workplace or service delivery tension inadvertently caused by culturally-charged slights, unconscious biases, or unintended offenses 
  • Improve Job Satisfaction, Staff and Customer Buy-In, and Loyalty

"Discover the value of practicing a more open and inclusive mindset into day-to-day operations."
