Event description

Description

Do you work in an organization that employs people from all over the world? Do you want to influence the culture of your organization? Are you actively managing the impact of cultural differences on the organization you lead and/or support? Do you want to turn the challenges often associated with cultural differences into a source of creativity and innovation for your organization? If so, this workshop is for you. Funded by the Alberta Innovation Fund of the Ministry of Labour, it is designed to help HR leaders, business partners, Diversity and Inclusion professionals, organization leaders, and/or Employee Resource Groups / Diversity Council members discuss how to increase the comfort level, understanding and skills of their employees in dealing with people who are culturally different from them.

In preparation for this workshop, all participants are asked to watch a series of 20 videos, which can be accessed through the following link:

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to make full use of a series of videos describing the impact of cultural differences in the workplace by:

· Determining which videos are best suited for a particular purpose and a particular audience

· Identifying how much cross-cultural knowledge and skills various groups of employees need

· Designing programs that meet the specific needs of each group of employees and integrating some of these videos in these programs

· Sharing best practices with other HR professionals who are working on similar issues in other organizations
