Facilitating Cross-Cultural Change

The Facilitating Cross-Cultural Change (FC3) Program is designed to build an advanced foundation of cultural understanding to increase the effectiveness of workplace systems and interactions with colleagues and clients. This professional development opportunity builds on the skills acquired through the core suite of HIO’s Cross-Cultural Competency training sessions. Our hope is that participants use the knowledge and skills acquired through the FC3 program to support learning and culture change in the workplace.

Participants will:

  • Acquire the skills to conduct an Introduction to Cross-Cultural Competency workshop within their workplaces
  • Be introduced to a ‘Developmental Model’ to better identify, understand, and reconcile different stages of cross-cultural competency
  • Enhance skills to assess and resolve cross-cultural conflicts and challenges in the workplace
  • Have an opportunity to network with other employers
