Global/Intercultural Fluency Competency

As the workplace becomes increasingly diverse in terms of cultures, races, ages, genders, sexual orientations, and religions, the need for individuals that have global/intercultural fluency also increases. This competency is defined as the ability to "demonstrate openness, inclusiveness, sensitivity, and respectful interaction with all people along with an appreciation of individuals’ differences." Although your colleagues will have varying opinions, improving in this competency will allow you to navigate these differences in a respectful way, creating an inclusive workplace. Complete a challenge in Global/Intercultural Fluency or articulate a significant past experience to improve your skills in this area.
