If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.

- Margaret Mead

Cultural Competence is an advantage that drives leading global companies. Why? The US Government Accountability Office and the Committee for Economic Development report that American businesses lose about $2 billion every year because they lack adequate cross cultural skills.

Understanding and Embracing Cross Cultural Diversity Within the Workplace is a Growing Necessity for Today's Organizations

According to the US Census Bureau, the convergence of several trends --declining births, retiring baby boomers, and expected business growth--will create more jobs than there will be workers to fill them in the next decade. Most of the growth within the U.S. population through 2020 will come from Hispanics (55 percent), Asians (20 percent) and African Americans (21 percent). Thus, the face of our workforce will continue to drastically change as the country assimilates more and more people of different ethnicities into the marketplace.
