Cultural Intelligence Workshops
International educators across North America are invited to join us for these Cultural Intelligence workshops. You will have an opportunity to assess your own Cultural Intelligence (CQ) and learn how to improve your ability to work with diverse stakeholders, including students, agents and parents.
Malvina Rapko, a certified Cultural Intelligence (CQ) facilitator and educator, will present these full-day workshops, which are ideal for all international educators and anyone who works with people from other cultures. She has a broad knowledge of the challenges in international education, having served as the recruitment manager and homestay coordinator at the Saskatoon International High School Program. She has also been a newcomer settlement worker and served with WUSC.
Here are just a few of the outcomes you will achieve:
- Understand the capabilities behind increasing one’s cultural intelligence (CQ)
- Receive a personalized feedback report
- Compare your CQ with worldwide norms
- Participate in reflection exercises that demonstrate interpretations of the feedback
- Create an action and development plan
“The CQ workshop gave me the necessary tools to support students in a culturally appropriate way. I also now know what my strengths are and areas that need improvement. The workshop was dynamic, engaging and extremely informative and I can’t wait to use my skills in both my professional and personal life.”
