NW Diversity Learning Series – 2015
Cultures, Generations, Genders—Bridging the Divides

 


Cultural agility has been identified as the skillset needed to navigate successfully in multicultural contexts.  Organization development studies indicate the topics of cultural differences, generational conflict, and gender biases are trending in the 21st century workplace.  In response to these trends, the 2015 NW Diversity Learning Series—now in its 17th year—seeks to foster cultural agility by bridging the divides in the multicultural workplace.  Six highly interactive and educational sessions will expand knowledge, build foundational skills, and cultivate transformational leadership styles in three areas:  intercultural competency, generational productivity, and gender equity.
