Cultural Competence for the Workplace

Rev Up Your Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Initiative

CADIA’s Cultural Competence Workshop is a transformative experience
designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills needed to
navigate diverse cultural landscapes effectively. Facilitators guide participants through essential topics such as cultural awareness, communication styles, and the impact of cultural norms on interpersonal relationships, empowering them to become more culturally competent individuals.

  • Explore elements of culture; define and consider what makes up
  • Talk about specific cultural differences around the globe across a
    matrix of topic areas.
  • Determine how those differences enhance the workplace, identify
    where they may cause disconnect, and strategies to leverage the
    differences and nuances that varied cultural perspectives can bring
    to a team environment.
  • Discuss cultural and linguistic differences, and where they show up
    in the workplace, explore biases and assumptions.
