Event Description

Title
Cultural Agility for a Changing World

Presenter
Gilda Montenegro-Fix, Cultural Agility Trainer and Consultant

In an increasingly complex, interconnected world, our ability to attract, authentically welcome and effectively apply diverse talent is a critical success factor. Developing skills in equity, diversity and inclusion is an essential adaptation to today's dynamic demographics as well as a key to enhanced innovation, creativity and growth. This interactive workshop will give you insights into your own unconscious bias and the culture of your organization. Just as importantly, you will obtain tools to move forward in your journey of cultural agility.
