Cultural Intelligence – Learn to Connect with Volunteers across Cultures

October 23 @ 9:15 am - 4:30 pm

A$175.00 - A$210.00

Volunteer organisations operate at the forefront of the “global village” that is multicultural Australia. 

But are you effectively attracting, recruiting and retaining volunteers from various cultural backgrounds?

Join us for an interactive session to learn how to create an inclusive environment and engage with multicultural communities.

Using evidence-based Cultural Intelligence (CQ) methods, we will:

  • Discover 3 vital questions to ask on culture
  • Look at everyday situations from different cultural angles
  • Get a Cultural Intelligence (CQ) toolbox for bridging cultural gaps, and
  • Take away an action plan for immediate application in your area of work

Course Content includes:

  • From cultural awareness to cross-cultural connections – three key steps
  • Cultural Literacy – a neutral language for discussing cultural differences
  • Cultural Awareness – uncovering the hidden depths of culture
  • Cultural Dimensions – the data on cultural differences
  • Cross-Cultural Communication – connecting effectively across cultures (scenarios)
  • Inclusion Nudges – Nobel Prize-winning theory applied to a list of impactful things you can do to welcome a diverse group of volunteers.

Add Cultural Intelligence to your skill-set, increase inclusion and connections in your community, and boost the sustainability of your organisation.

Please note that on the day of the workshop you must arrive for registration at 9:15am for a 9:30am sharp start. 
Please note minimum numbers are required for this workshop.
