'Diversity' is becoming a big thing in business these days. Gender diversity, racial diversity, LGBTQ diversity, etc. But one area that is too often glossed over is Cultural Diversity. While many companies see the value of having different cultures in their company, they fail to provide adequate training to promote actual understanding of the cultural differences; and too often, what training is done relies on cultural stereotypes ("Chinese are like this" and "Germans are like this") which are all too often inaccurate, and only contribute to misunderstanding and confusion. This 90 minute presentation will show you an entirely new perspective on not only understanding cultural differences, but also eliminating culture-based stereotypes and biases, and empowering your teams to harness their Cultural Diversity to make your business far more successful!

Our sincerest gratitude to Thinkific (thinkific.com) for not only sponsoring this event by providing a great venue, but also assisting with organizing and publicizing the event!
