Intercultural Diversity and Inclusion
Being ‘culturally aware’ means recognising that everyone has a background influencing how they interpret the world and perceive others. Being culturally aware or ‘culturally competent’ doesn’t mean being an expert on every culture or having an answer to every cultural question and issue, it simply means acknowledging that different perspectives exist as a result of everyone’s different cultural background and life experiences. Embracing this difference is the key to exploring cultural issues effectively and appropriately.
Auspire’s Intercultural Diversity and Inclusion workshops have been designed to increase cultural awareness, knowledge, and communication and will benefit by improving communication and inclusion of diverse group and promoting better teamwork by recognising and having tolerance for differences among co-workers.
To evaluate your organisation’s diversity and inclusion capacity use this Cultural Diversity Assessment tool. Developed by the Human Rights Commission, this tool can help your organisation by:
- offering practical steps to manage a culturally diverse workplace
- allowing organisations assess themselves against 30 measures of competence
- providing a starting point for a focus on cultural diversity
- helping those committed to cultural diversity to move towards best practice.
Workplaces that manage cultural diversity well can expect to receive a host of benefits including the recruitment and retaining the best talent and attract a broader range of clients and customers.
