FittingThePiecesThe IDEAL is to put preventative measures in place BEFORE an incident, conflict, or crisis occurs.

Not only is it more equitable to treat people fairly and to know about the cultures that you are in contact with, it can also affect a business financially. Beyond the negatives of lowered morale and decreased productivity, treating people unfairly in business can hit you squarely in the pocketbook.

I encourage looking at cultures other than your own, not because it’s the politically correct thing to do but rather, out of your own motivation. That’s something that I strive to get above and beyond in my classrooms and workshops. When people feel they have been mandated into a mindset, they shut down. I help them explore stereotypes and  beliefs behind them.

I encourage my clients become Proactive and Responsive to workplace cultural issues. The idea is to avoid being Reactive. Don’t wait until a lawsuit or grievance is filed. There are steps that can be taken to develop a positive workplace environment that is honoring and respectful of all cultures – whether that culture is race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.

Why You Should Hire Me:

I am:

I have a Ph.D. in Education specializing in Cultural Studies. I have been conducting diversity and cross-cultural workshops and classes at the university level for the past 10 years. I am passionate and absolutely believe we can learn to dialogue and work across perceived and real cultural differences. In fact, it is essential that we as a society, in our workplaces, and in our relationships learn to understand, respect and appreciate other cultures while still maintaining and respecting our own. Striking that balance does not often come naturally, but it can be taught.

I Can Help.
