Cultural Awareness in the Workplace

Prerequisites: None
Cost: $449 plus HST - individual course; $2,500 - New Managers Certificate

The purpose of this course is to enhance cultural awareness and cultural competence through scientific and experiential methods by covering valuable information, engaging in individual and group exercises, and providing tools and techniques. The course will further enhance the skills, knowledge, and awareness of participants in their interactions with others, assisting them to recognize what they can do to become more effective in working and living in a culturally diverse environment. It is important that—for businesses and organizations to thrive—they be aware and sensitive to all the members of the community.

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) reports that culture impacts productivity, explaining, “employees from different backgrounds are motivated by different incentives and react differently to various management and communication styles.”
