What are the benefits of investing in this workshop? 

The EA Continuum for Leading Cultural Conversations (CFLCC) is a valuable tool for engaging in and igniting cultural conversations. The ORIGIN program is for individuals who are serious about identifying biases and exercising cultural awareness and intelligence (CQ) muscles. 

Here are some key benefits you will receive from Module 1: 

1. **Framework for Understanding**: It provides a structured framework for understanding cultural differences and similarities. This allows participants in the conversation to have a common language and reference point for discussing cultural dynamics.

2. **Facilitates Dialogue**: The CFLCC encourages open dialogue with self -- FIRST-- about cultural perspectives, behaviors, and values. By evaluating our cultural mindsets along a spectrum, it promotes discussion rather than debate, fostering a more inclusive and collaborative atmosphere, starting with yourself first.

3. **Promotes Cultural Awareness**: Using the CFLCC helps participants develop greater cultural awareness by acknowledging the diversity within and between cultures. It encourages individuals to reflect on their own cultural biases and assumptions, leading to increased empathy and understanding.

4. **Supports Intercultural Competence**: By exploring various points along the CFLCC, participants can enhance their intercultural competence. They learn to navigate cultural differences more effectively, leading to improved communication, collaboration, and conflict resolution in diverse settings.

5. **Encourages Self-Reflection**: The CFLCC encourages self-reflection on one's own cultural identity and emotional tendencies/current thought patterns. Participants are prompted to consider how their cultural background influences their perceptions and interactions with others, leading to greater self-awareness.

6. **Addresses Power Dynamics**: The CFLCC can help address power dynamics within cultural conversations by highlighting how certain cultural attributes may be privileged or marginalized in different contexts. This promotes more honest and vulnerable discussions on belonging, inclusion, and wellbeing.

7. **Adaptable and Versatile**: The CFLCC can be adapted to various cultural dimensions such as communication styles, leadership approaches, decision-making processes, and conflict resolution strategies. This versatility allows it to be applied across different cultural contexts and organizational settings.

Overall, the CFLCC serves as a powerful tool for facilitating constructive cultural conversations, fostering mutual respect, empathy, and appreciation for surface-level and deep-level diversity.

“Of all the experiences we’ve had, the one that stands out is our newly refined approach to communication. The Continuum for Leading Cultural Conversations has been a game changer in order to continue recognizing our own tendencies and those of others when we are faced with complex topics and sensitive moments. This framework and their facilitation and continuous reminding for us to exercise communicating this way gave us permission to say our piece, to listen, and then figure out how we want to move forward as a team. That’s an impact that is priceless as we dive into the complex work of advocating for our scholars in a deeper way. From this point, we will take everything we’ve learned and put together an equity statement that provides us with a frame to process what we do , how we do it, and refine why we do the things we believe can level the playing field for communities across America.”
