Global Competency Training

October 17, 2019


Join the Cleveland Council on World Affairs for a series of workshops to develop greater global understanding. The series consists of 3 key elements that build off each other (understanding cultural norms; developing cross-cultural strategies; engaging in global competency assessment). Participants can select the series or choose the workshop(s) that suit their interests or needs.

Learning outcomes from the series include:

    • Understand oneโ€™s own cultural perspective
    • Identify and gain awareness of underlying dimensions of culture
    • Recognize the importance of approaching cultural interactions with an open mind
    • Learn how to communicate more effectively across cultures


Training dates:

    • December 10: Engaging in Global Competency Assessment
