There is no charge for this event, but registration is required. Enrollment Limit: 32

Creating a culturally competent and inclusive workplace culture blends awareness with actions and behaviours. In this activity we will “create” what we think of as a normal culture, and then explore the process of changing it; balancing the needs of the people who will come and go, with the needs of the group (the organization). Intercultural components of change are mixed among more general expectations of communicating. This is an interactive activity, with a large percentage of the time relying upon the lived experiences of those in each group being shared and developed. We cultivate the trust that comes from open communication and enhance our abilities to be agents of change. The activity is debriefed by a skilled facilitator, and participants emerge with a deeper appreciation for our own roles and abilities in this process.

Those registering for this workshop are encouraged to attend the “Benefits of a Diverse Workplace Culture” live webinar, offered monthly by the ISANS Workplace Culture program, without charge. Attendance on this webinar is an optional, enjoyable opportunity to raise awareness and answer questions prior to the day and is led by the same expert facilitator as with our workshop.
