Cultural Intelligence Training of Trainers is Coming in April

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is the ability to have effective interactions across cultures. Cultural intelligence goes beyond the ability to recognize and appreciate differences across cultures. Academic research has provided empirical results that demonstrate CQ as a measurable construct that is grounded in theory.

In partnership with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, CFAES is working to develop a cadre of facilitators who will lead sessions for Ohio State faculty, staff and students. In April 2014, we will be hosting a CQ training of trainers. There will be an application process and a modest fee. CFAES faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in this day-and-a-half-long training
