2017 Community Leadership Series - Leading with Intercultural Competence


The 2017 Community Leadership Series continues with its July webinar "Leading with Intercultural Competence."  This webinar will be held on Thursday, July 20, 2017 from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (CST).

Our communities are becoming increasingly diverse.  When leading in diverse communities, leaders must be aware of their own beliefs and views of different cultures as well as how that impacts their ability to work across cultures to benefit a community.  Leaders who have an awareness of these issues are able to contribute to the creation of thriving and welcoming places.

This unique webinar offering allows participants the opportunity to complete the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) online.   The IDI provides you with information on your own "orientations toward cultural difference and commonality."  The profile that you will receive can help you to think about your experiences around cultural differences and similarities.  

As part of the online webinar, Toby Spanier, Leadership and Civic Engagement Extension educator, will discuss the importance of intercultural competence in building community.  He will also provide information and insights into the assessment tool that will help you to better understand your individual results.  He will also discuss how to take the information from the assessment and build action steps to further your understanding and personal development.

The cost of this online experience is $30 for the cost and processing of the assessment tool.  Registration is open at this LINK through June 23, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. (CST).  To learn more about other upcoming learning opportunities visit the 2017 Community Leadership Series page.
