Introductory: New to topic / subject matter
Building Capacity: Skills, Competencies, & Processes for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Round 1 only
Jane Hyun, Founder & CEO, Hyun & Associates
Today's globally connected and evolving workplace demands more agility in our ability to understand multicultural perspectives and thinking styles of team members, colleagues. Culture profoundly impacts interpersonal dynamics including how we build relationships, how we disagree with each other, and our approach to problem solving. And while technology has connected us globally, it has made it more challenging for us to decipher nonverbal cues and subtle nuances that we encounter every day. These challenges become highlighted as we navigate a multicultural workforce in our organizations. You will have a chance to explore the cultural influences that impact the way you work with others. We will discuss what it means to practice authentic leadership while also leveraging your cultural assets, insights and experience.
To be effective at driving change in an organization, practitioners need to be aware of their own cultural biases and have deep self understanding, in addition to having deep other-understanding of individuals not like themselves. This session provides the framework for thinking about differences and a path forward.
Expected workshop outcomes, participant take-aways:
Increased self awareness about culture and the impact of culture in an organizational setting
learn how cultural fluency connects to diversity, equity and inclusion work
Individual Identify personal learning objectives where cultural fluency can be incorporated
