Cross-Cultural Competency Training for Employers

The HIO cross-cultural competency training is designed to equip employers, HR Professionals, and people managers with practical skills, strategies and tools needed to increase cultural competencies and prepare workplaces for a culturally diverse employee base.

Why Cross-Cultural Competency?

There are seven modules in this suite of professional development training sessions. These stand-alone sessions give you the flexibility of choosing the topics of interest to you or most relevant to your workplace. Each session is delivered in a small group setting, by a professional facilitator with expertise in cultural competency.

Sessions are free, but space is limited. You must register in advance.

You will receive a Cross-Cultural Competency Certificate of Training after completing four sessions.
