"Cultural Intelligence is the ability to make oneself understood and the ability to create a fruitful collaboration in situations where cultural differences play a role."

ABOUT US

About Myra Hindus   Partners   Testimonials

On the face of it, issues of diversity and inclusion seem easy to address. Discrimination is bad. Open-mindedness is good. Every culture has value and every person should be welcome.

But scratch the surface and you'll find a host of complexities and conflicts in today's diverse workplaces. Or, as Creative Diversity Solutions founder Myra Hindus, MSW calls them, "the elephants in the room." Working with people who are different from us can produce anxiety, anger, guilt, competitiveness…the full range of human emotions. Rather than confront these complexities, work groups often avoid or deny the problems. That's a recipe for even more conflict.

A Holistic Approach

Our enterprise-wide approach to diversity and inclusion is rooted in the idea that everyone is responsible for building an organization's cultural intelligence, not just the Diversity or Affirmative Action office. We define cultural intelligence in its broadest context across multiple human dimensions, such as race, ability, gender, gender identity, religion, nationality, class, ethnicity, age, and sexual orientation.
