Effective Cultural Adaptation Strategies
Mar 19 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Through research, we can now describe the profile of the person who adapts inter-culturally (both to culture and to workplace) most effectively. In this session we will focus on: exploring the adaptation process and the strategies that make it successful; a self-assessment tool (used by both new Canadians and multicultural workplaces) that not only identifies one’s personal areas of strength and challenge in adaptation but also provides action plans for addressing areas of challenge; and identifying aspects of African and Arab culture that may appear in the workplace.

Culturally Competent Interviewing Skills

We will use a paradigm to build skills that are interpreted congruently by both interviewer and the Internationally Educated Professional who is interviewing. We will also address and respond to best practices in the Ontario Human Rights Code Removing the “Canadian Experience” Barrier Guide for Employers and Regulatory Bodies. Find out more…
