CEWIL Webinar: Cultural Intelligence: An Essential Tool For Our EDI Work
February 23, 2021, 12:00 - 4:00 PM
Cultural Intelligence, or CQ, is one’s ability to work and relate effectively in diverse cultural settings. It is a globally recognized way of assessing and improving effectiveness for culturally diverse situations.
This session will develop your understanding of cultural intelligence, how you can develop your own capability for success in diverse cultural contexts, and how CQ can support your EDI work. Participants will have the opportunity to complete a CQ self-assessment prior to the start of the course.
