This course focuses on increasing cultural awareness, and as more and more teams and organizations work remotely, it is a topic with increasing importance as people interact through various modalities, not just in person. The course discusses a lack of understanding, defining culture, promoting cultural diversity in the workplace, gestures, and a code of conduct as part of increasing this awareness.
This module should be used among all your employees as part of a broader diversity and inclusion initiative and should be considered as part of your onboarding process for new hires.
