Summit Series Final Session (Session 10): “The Relationship Gap: Bridging the Divide in Creating Inclusive Relationships” by Ekua Mends-Aidoo

Inclusive relationship building is the key to building more diverse networks. In order to effectively connect with others we must first understand cultural awareness and humility. Culture is not static, but dynamic and changing, requiring us to become more aware of these changing values and dynamic forces. By bridging both cultural humility and interpersonal communications together, organizations can not only deepen the collective self-awareness of their employees, but expect stronger interpersonal relationships as well.
