Cultural Diversity Day Goal 2:
Achieve a balanced flow of cultural goods and services and increase mobility of artists and cultural professionals
How can e-training solutions help with improving the mobility of multicultural artists and their goods and services? They can play a crucial role in it. Here’s how.
Although many people do make an effort to seek out the artistic fruits of other parts of the world, the best way to increase awareness of – and interest in – cultural diversity is a diverse workplace. Even in professions that have nothing to do with the arts, getting to know people from other parts of the world is the greatest way for others to learn about all their culture has to offer – and to want to know and experience more.
But achieving that diversity can be a major challenge. While the global South is rich in talent for nearly any job, training opportunities are scarce in many places. Visa restrictions and processes can also be a hurdle even once a qualified prospect has been identified and interviewed.
E-learning solutions are a great resource for addressing that challenge. By providing access to a fun and informative way to learn new skills, you can open doors to new talent anywhere in the world. You can also provide an onboarding program for new hires while waiting for their visas, so they’re fully up to speed by the time they are able to join you. You can even increase cultural awareness through online gamification, providing incentives for people to learn more about their colleagues’ backgrounds.
The first step towards embracing diversity is greater awareness of it. Online learning resources can help you and your team get there.
