As London becomes increasingly diverse so will our workplaces. Organizations that plan for this increased diversity will create an environment for a strong work culture and a productive and innovative workplace. In this interactive session we will reflect on how our own cultural context impacts our actions when we deal with differences and discuss strategies to manage these situations more effectively.
