As we know all too well, there can be many advantages and challenges to managing diverse teams. One of the most critical features of building and sustaining a diverse and inclusive organization is developing and coaching cultural competence in your managers so they can lead and develop diverse teams.

  • Identify the “weeding in” versus “weeding out” of diversity hiring.
  • Gain a new approach to evaluating candidate’s quality, performance, and soft skills.
