Culture Brokering: Workshops to Increase Cultural Competency and Improve Communication

What is culture brokering?

Culture brokering means bridging the gap between your organization and the diverse groups you communicate with. It’s also sometimes called “partnership brokering,” because it’s all about building stronger partnerships with people from diverse backgrounds.

Why can diversity create communication challenges?

Our cultural backgrounds affect how we talk, listen, act, and react. When we’re talking with someone from a different background, we may not understand where the other person is coming from.

The ICI offers workshops and trainings about culture brokering.
