Succeed in a Diverse and Global World

Welcome Diversity & Inclusion Conference Europe Attendees

Congratulations, you are now entered for a chance to win a virtual CQ Certification!  Winner will be announced near the end of the conference.  Please review our complimentary inclusion and educational resources.

The Cultural Intelligence Center is excited to attend and exhibit at the Diversity & Inclusion Conference Europe for the first time. We believe differences in beliefs, values and behaviors can cause misunderstandings and conflict. Without the right tools and mental models, it can be challenging to reap the benefits of diversity.

We would like to introduce you to Cultural Intelligence (CQ). Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is defined as the ability to relate and work effectively with people who are different from us. CQ is a valuable tool that can foster inclusion effectively. We believe that CQ is a key foundational element to any strategy that emphasizes inclusion and diversity.
Please enjoy the complimentary resources below and we hope to hear from you in the near future.
