International Translation Day is meant to be an opportunity to pay tribute to the work of language professionals, which plays an important role in bringing nations together, facilitating dialogue, understanding and cooperation, contributing to development, and strengthening world peace and security.

Therefore, this is an appropriate occasion on which to thank all of the translators who have taken time from other activities to help CID prepare translations of our publications into a remarkable 32 different languages. We could not do this without you! 

NOTE: If you want to translate one of the publications into a language in which you are fluent, please contact us before you start, to learn whether anyone else is already working on that publication in that language.

In this half-day symposium, the Virtual ICC working group of the World Council of Global and Intercultural Competences invites all to join in open spaces for discussion and learning, to hear about promising Virtual ICC practices across cultures and disciplines, and discuss how to establish virtual ICC learning as part of a toolbox of valuable ICC strategies. Future ICC learning needs to address various spaces, approaches, and forms of collaborative, experiential learning so that people from all over the globe can learn from and with each other in building a better world together.

The Culturally Intelligent Organization (Webinar)

EventsThe culturally intelligent organization by Mercedes Naficy D’Angelo and Nitin Deckha, SIETAR Tri-State group, 22 June 2022, 11am-12pm EST.

The SIETAR Tri-State group (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut) has organized another webinar, and CID followers are again invited to participate.

This session explores how to create an intentional culture of inclusion strategically. Addressing DEI is not about checking the box by simply offering training. While training is an important element in a DEI program, taking the pulse of an organization’s current culture, via a “Lived Experience Survey” and focus groups, offers valuable insight into the examining the dimensions of diversities in an organization, which can then be leveraged to enhance an organization’s diversity, equity and inclusion strategy. This involves identifying the strengths and weaknesses of an organization’s culture and subsequently designing programs to address those weaknesses, thereby providing a more effective DEI approach. Furthermore, when senior leadership better understand the complexity and range of their organization’s culture, they are more able to see the intersections of cultural identities and experiences and the importance of building equity and inclusion with intention and purpose. This culturally-intelligent strategic approach offers greater accountability and with more immediate results.

Mercedes Naficy D’Angelo has consulted with global HR for more than 20 years, designing customized solutions for supporting their talent management needs.

Nitin Deckha holds a PhD in Anthropology from Rice University (Houston, TX), a Master’s Certificate in Adult Training and Development from York University’s Schulich Executive Education Centre and is a Certified Training Development Professional (CTDP).
