CCDI Webinar: Intercultural competence: The employer’s role

There is no denying that the cultural makeup of Canada is changing faster than ever before. It’s imperative that employers have a solid understanding of intercultural competence in order to ensure they are creating workplaces where people from different cultures (specifically those who have been raised outside of the “Canadian culture”) can strive and thrive.

This webinar will examine the subject of intercultural competence from the employers’ perspective. We will share tips and tricks to help address what employers need to do to create culturally inclusive workplaces.

Who should attend:

  • HR and D&I practitioners: These webinars are targeted toward HR and diversity and inclusion practitioners who have some information on the topic. They will answer the question “how to?” and provide participants with promising practices of how they can tackle some of the most pressing issues related to diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
