As in all fields of study, the field of diversity management continues to evolve, with "cultural competency" at its core. While diversity management was once thought of as simply being aware of differences of race and ethnicity, we now know that it is much more, with the term" cultural competency" covering a far broader span of areas such as gender and generational differences, and religious and cultural beliefs and customs, just to name a few. As our society becomes much more multi-cultural and our organizations progressively more global in scope, it becomes more and more apparent that this skill is vital for today's leaders Join us tonight as Lisa Pasbjerg, executive coach and CEO of Focused Coaching, LLC interviews William Appleton, President of Kairos Consulting. and a CDP (Certified Diversity Professional.)

We surmise that cultural homogeneity is on its way to extinction, and that the recognition of cultural diversity has become the new global tradition. However, cultural diversity is just the first step, and incomplete without harmony or congruence between people of different cultures. Cultural harmony shows the possibility of how one culture relates to another and how a person relates to the society.
Every one of us has a cultural background and often times we must relate with people of other cultures, beliefs, and races within our society or other society when we travel. Sometimes bad laws are made, such as the anti-gay laws in Africa, or police brutality in the USA, Xenophibia, creed, class, racism, political feud, and claims that one culture is superior or chosen by God over another. These creates negative cultivated dependences which pervade our ability or interest to co-exist peacefully. Look no where else than unto yourself to change the paradigm.
We invite you to join this conversation and share your views or tell the story of how you use your ability or knowledge to extend friendship and encourage harmony between peoples that are different to you?
If you could change one thing for the better what would it be?

How do you start and build a cross-cultural mentoring program? When we think of mentoring programs in the workplace, we tend to think of programs that carefully match mentors and mentees who share some or a lot of cultural similarities.
But there’s another approach to mentor/mentee matching and that is identifying and pairing mentors and mentees who cross different cultures, such as mentors and mentees who come from different races, genders, ethnicities, religions, cultural backgrounds, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations, or nationality.
Today I will discuss this topic with my guest Jodi Davidson, Director of Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives at Sodexo.
Cultural Pearls: Niamat Shaheed presents Global News Gathering from different time zones and addresses issues and topics with a Qur'anic perspective.
Finding the right partner is challenging enough when both parties come from the same background. But what about when there is a racial, cultural or religious difference? Will crossing these boundaries help the human family beome more unified and less divided? Or do we owe it to our racial group, our cultural heritage, or our religious community to stay within those boundaries when considering a person for marriage? What happens if a Muslim woman marries a non-Muslim man? What happens if an African American woman marries a white man? What happens if an American marries an African? Will it help us understand each other? Or are we asking for a marriage full of conflict and incompatibility?
Marxism is a worldview and a method of societal analysis that focuses on class relations and societal conflict, that uses a materialist interpretation of historical development, and a dialectical view of social transformation.
Now that we understand what Marxism is, "What is Cultural Marxism?" Our guest tonight is simply a man whom we will just call Sarge. Don't miss this show tonight to get the details on Cultural Marxism and the insight in today's world on how Cultural Marxism relates to religion, homosexuality, nationalism, and government.
