Let’s get started

This week we’re asking the question: why does cultural diversity matter in the workplace?

Welcome to Week 2 of Leading Culturally Diverse Teams in the Workplace.

This week we’re asking the question: why does cultural diversity matter in the workplace?

To do this, we’re going to look closer at:

  • how cultural diversity can impact team functioning
  • cultural faultlines, or subgroups, that form within multicultural teams
  • the complexities of working in global virtual teams (GVTs).

We’re going to explore the challenges and opportunities of working in multicultural teams so that, by next week, you’ll be ready to start learning more about the strategies and frameworks to tackle them.

As you go through this week, we encourage you to reflect on how these ideas translate to your own team.
