The Forum on Workplace Inclusion Podcast

COVID has created an unanticipated world where we have greater virtual access to others. As teams span geographical and national boundaries to collaborate, the need for deeper intercultural and diversity, equity, and inclusion (ICDEI) awareness, practical tools, and skills has never been more vital. The world has changed and won’t change back to the way it was, so creating a bridge to greater awareness between incredibly diverse team members, and between oneself and others is critical for optimized workplace communication and performance necessary for solving complex problems. It is possible to develop an environment with intercultural diversity, incorporating multiple languages and nations, that transcends divisiveness and amplifies the gifts of diversity. We transformed a network of global intercultural organizations to create conversations that pushed through defensive attitudes and adversarial barriers and moved directly to embrace individual, team, and organizational strengths.
