Recent world happenings, including the Black Lives Matter movement, have placed a spotlight on diversity and inclusion. In order to align with the business and social responsibility case for diversity and inclusion, more and more organizations are working towards repositioning their brands to understand racial bias, promote cultural intelligence and build a workforce that is diverse and inclusive.
Building and working in diverse and inclusive teams requires cultural intelligence as a competency and now is a great time to begin to develop an understanding of it.
