Diversity & Inclusion Training
Available from Global Competence Associates
Our organization’s training roots are in Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) programming, which we call Diversity Perspectives™. The objectives of D&I parallel seamlessly with the research on global competence. However, instead of a global span, the D&I geographic scope can be scaled down to regional, national, or local, as desired. Global competence can serve as a framework for fresh, innovative, and holistic approaches to D&I through a knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSA) approach:
●Self-awareness, especially unconscious bias and the realization of potential gaps between personal preference compared with social norms or mores in a different setting
●Respectful and non-judgmental attitudes towards groups and individuals from diverse backgrounds;
●Knowledge or awareness of different views, values, issues, concerns, religions, societies, and ways of living;
●Adaptive and collaborative interpersonal skills that bridge various aspects of diversity to foster inclusivity.
Diversity Perspectives™ training programs can be delivered independently or as support to targeted Global Competence Aptitude Assessment (GCAA)® metrics. Additionally, a course may be customized to include elements from the global competence course Global Outlook – Successful Global Attitudes.
All programs are curated and customized to meet participant and client needs.
