Developing Cultural and Diversity Intelligence in a Changing World

Learning Overview

Rapid globalization and movement of human resources have created the necessity to build cross-cultural competence in organizations, a challenge that lies at the heart of every business strategy.

With the fair consideration framework (FCF) and tripartite guidelines on fair employment practices, competence in embracing diversity and inclusion at the workplace is no longer an option.
