ATDps: January 2018 Seattle Chapter Meeting
Exploring Cognitive Diversity and Navigating Cultural Differences
Diversity and Inclusion is a top priority and strategic initiative for many talent management functions. Ernst & Young has explored a unique approach to helping their professionals navigate cognitive diversity by offering learning programs and coaching focused on exploring different global mindsets that impact cross-cultural interactions. This approach has strengthened their ability to work with global teams, both internally and with the clients they serve.
The learning objectives:
- Learn about cognitive diversity and how to encourage greater curiosity about invisible and cultural differences
- Identify best practices to understand, interpret and anticipate invisible differences
- Build greater competency in cross-cultural interaction
