DE&I Activator Series: Fundamentals of cultural competence

Virtual Event


The DE&I Activator Series kicked off May 12 with session one: Understanding the business case for DE&I.

The DE&I Activator Series is an introduction to key concepts, strategies, mindsets and skill sets to support participant's knowledge of how to activate a diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) workplace culture shift. The series offers concrete application strategies to help a workplace envision its DE&I goals and identify steps for implementation.

In this final session, participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of vocabulary, approaches, and distinctions of cultural and intercultural competencies.  We will also explore its role in the broader discussion of diversity, equity, and inclusion organizational initiatives and strategies that have been discussed in the Activator Series.

Participants will:
– Understand the definitions of cultural and intercultural competency.
– Develop an awareness of the distinctions between informational and developmental tools and assessments related to cultural and intercutural competency.
– Gain an introduction to two different approaches to the development of cultural and intercultural competency.
