Colors of Success: Cultural Competency and Why it Matters at Work

Colors of Success: Cultural Competency and Why it Matters at Work

Tuesday, June 11, 2024 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EDT)


*Virtual Event*

Please join our Colors of Success DEI webinar, where Cheryl Hayward, Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Manager, Department of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at Monroe County will give an introduction to cultural competence and how it affects the workplace. 

Today, organizations continue to engage a workforce of diverse individuals. Employees bring their unique cultural values, customs, and languages from around the world into the workplace. To influence a culture of inclusion that encourages diversity and promotes belonging, we must explore how culture impacts relationships, communication, and problem-solving within our organizations. This workshop provides an introduction to understanding the importance of interacting effectively across cultures, explores key areas where culture often differs, and describes steps that employees can take to develop and gain cultural competency in a diverse world.


This webinar will explore the following topics:

  • Improved ability to communicate and enhance respect across cultures
  • Learn strategies for improving cross-cultural interactions
  • Understand ways cultural awareness influence belonging in the workplace
