Learn How to Tactfully Handle Racial and Cultural Differences in the Workplace


Demographics are changing rapidly in the business world and race is part of those rapid changes.  Racial and cultural differences can positively or negatively impact communication and business results.

Some business analysts are uncomfortable knowing how to communicate effectively when race seems to be part of the dynamic. Racial bias, whether real or perceived can be a huge problem. The “Black Lives Matter” movement has generated some new intensity that is not simple to navigate interpersonally. Communication differences also offer a huge opportunity for building a strong work culture. Diversity, when done right, adds so much richness to a company’s culture and can enrich the financial bottom line.
