Cultivating Cultural Competence: Taking Responsibility for Respectful and Productive Workplace Dialogue and Relationships

One of the most significant challenges in creating a healthy corporate culture is that of sustained interaction among people of different ethnicities, education levels, races, religions, ages, genders, etc. Perhaps even more challenging is the task of getting employees to attend diversity and inclusion training, engage with it, and come away equipped to implement practical solutions that have a chance to foster an genuinely inclusive environment that leverages the benefits of meaningful diversity.  

ReelTime CLE’s newest interactive workshop is designed to help participants interact and communicate with one another in a constructive fashion about cultural differences, and to think through what it means to genuinely embrace inclusion as a core value. Our thought-provoking, memorable original film vignettes are designed to help participants identify common hindrances to genuine openness, collaboration, and productivity, and to prompt meaningful discussion about practical, sustainable solutions. This program can be customized to fit any size organization, and to be delivered in a variety of timed formats tailored to your organization’s specific concerns & objectives.
