Cultural differences are associated with different nationalities, businesses and professions, to name just a few. Cultural differences are also found between people who think about diversity issues, and people that live them.
Because of their different starting points of looking at the potential and the challenges of diversity,
the thinkers (academics, policy makers) and the people living it (executives, consultants) experience difficulty when talking to each other.
If they could find a way to work together, a huge learning potential would be unlocked.
Within CMC-Europe, we believe it is part of our job to bridge the gap between practice and theory.
As cross-cultural consultants, we encounter both the struggle with and potential of diversity that our customers experience every day.
By generating applicable theoretical knowledge as practitioners, we are not only contributing theoretical knowledge to our field, but can actually
help our customers to unleash the potential of diversity.
