Why an Intercultural Intervention?

When there is a lack of cultural awareness, cultural knowledge or cross-cultural skills, the impact can be very problematic for integration, inclusion, and retention in any environment. For example, executives and their families on a international assignment can isolate themselves and struggle personally and professionally as they count down the days to return to their "home" culture. Managers can lose talented staff and the benefits that diverse perspectives bring to global business. Students can engage in superficial cultural learning and conclude their immersive experiences with a narrow world-view, re-inforced stereotypes, and lost opportunity for meaningful cultural exchange.

 

The goal of a INTERCULTURAL INTERVENTION training program is to provide the essential tools for success in any intercultural setting and the awareness, knowledge, and skills to lead and foster a culturally diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace and team.
