While the professional world is now more diverse and interconnected than ever before, success in a multicultural context requires more than a Zoom account and an internet connection. To gain trust, build credibility, and communicate effectively in a multicultural environment, professionals need a greater level of cultural agility.
Cultural agility is the ability to comfortably and successfully work in culturally novel contexts and with people from different cultures (e.g., national, generational, professional).
Paula Caligiuri (author of Build Your Cultural Agility and Cultural Agility: Developing a Pipeline of Successful Global Professionals and Co-Founder of Skiilify) will discuss the myths surrounding the development of cultural agility — and how these myths have permeated through talent management practices. She will also discuss how to build cultural agility competencies for future global roles.
If interested, participants are welcome to use the free version of myGiide.com. The content will correspond to the webinar.
