Aperian Global’s Approach to Cross-Cultural Diversity Training

Allow an organization to take advantage of the benefits that a diverse workforce can provide
Create an environment where a diverse workforce feels involved, respected and connected
Where the richness of ideas, backgrounds and perspectives are harnessed to create business value
Encourage individuals to collaborate to create true synergy and competitive advantage
Our cultural diversity training solutions for increasing and leveraging global inclusion include:
Through business cultural diversity training, we assist clients with developing or fine-tuning their business case for inclusion & diversity that is globally consistent, yet is flexible for local relevance. We also provide consultation to develop communication strategies to ensure consistent global messaging.
Inclusion & Diversity is a focused change management initiative. Therefore, it is critical that organizations have clear strategic plans to manage start-up, planning, and ongoing actions of their Inclusion & Diversity advisory councils.
Increasing the awareness of employees’ understanding of Inclusion & Diversity often involves changing behaviors. In our Inclusion & Diversity learning journeys, we work with our clients to customize workshops that cater to their specific needs. Our primary focus in these workshops is to engage participants on a personal level to understand that becoming more inclusive will demand a change in how we view the world and how we work together effectively.
