    In this CPA Ontario course, you will explore the challenges of working with people of diverse backgrounds. The course will empower you to approach intercultural situations with knowledge, skills, and a positive attitude. We all have unconscious biases and this workshop will create a safe place to search for ways to avoid accidental discrimination.

    You will build your comfort and skill in working with diverse colleagues and clients. At the same time, you will enhance your growth mindset, and be better able to welcome intercultural challenges. Look at ways to prioritize your cultural values and strengths and a rational approach to management in a multicultural environment.

    You will explore listening techniques to help understand another speaker’s point of view and ways to reduce intercultural misunderstanding and conflict.
