Aspects of Inclusive Culture

Learn how cultural awareness supports inclusivity and how it supports a culture of belonging in organizations.

Program Overview

Inclusive cultures bring cultural awareness, belonging, and mental health to the forefront. Cultural awareness supports inclusivity because it empowers employees to work effectively with people from different demographics. With cultural awareness, organizations can foster a culture of belonging, facilitate collaboration, encourage decision-making, and support employee engagement. A culture of belonging includes employees being their authentic selves. Organizations encourage workplace authenticity and belonging when they support mental health initiatives, foster resilience, and create environments where employees are comfortable discussing mental health challenges. In this course, you will learn about these important aspects of an inclusive culture.
