"After the course, I think I gained many things. I know how to lead different people with different styles, focus on something deeper (values) and not only focus on the surface of something. I learned how to cooperate with someone different from me and how to communicate and express myself better." — Participant in the Global Leadership and Innovation Program
“Workshops like this that make us better understand people coming from different cultures are very beneficial to multi-national and -cultural companies like us at Google. I feel now, after the workshop, that I have a better approach for understanding and communicating with people of different backgrounds, nationalities, and cultures.” — Google employee and attendee of the "Communicating and Miscommunicating Across Cultures" workshop
"This workshop helped me better define my conflict style and confirmed the importance of inclusion in the workplace. I also plan to bring this workshop back to my specific department as I feel it will be very useful with helping our staff better handle work related conflict." — City of Hayward employee and attendee of the "Leading Inclusively: Building a Culture of Belonging" workshop
"It really was a good use of my time to hear these concepts, and then practice them with the role play activities and case studies. Professionally, it is always good to learn new communication techniques and be reminded that appreciating differences is a good way to build trust and inclusion." -Lawrence Berkeley National Lab employee and attendee of the "Effective Communication across Cultures" workshop
“This CIL workshop should be required for the entire workforce. It provided helpful insight and practices on how culture applies to - and influences – our work, personal life, travel and interactions. I gained confidence along with helpful tools to be a better colleague to my co-workers.” — Chevron employee and attendee of Cultural Adaptation workshop
