Global D&I Learning Series Aims to Raise Cultural Awareness
Kellogg’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) launched a Global D&I Learning Series in 2015, aimed at helping employees work together effectively in our multicultural, international organization.
“Many Kellogg employees have global responsibilities,” said Noel H., Senior Manager, Diversity and Inclusion. “As they work across regions, they need to understand cultural differences, be flexible in how they interact with others and make adjustments as needed.”
Three sessions were held in 2015 — one each on multicultural marketing and global consumer trends; cross-cultural communication; and millennials in the workplace. The sessions are voluntary and open to any Kellogg employee interested in the topic. Each involved presentations from Kellogg leaders as well as external experts.
The first two sessions were held in person at Kellogg headquarters in Battle Creek, Michigan, but were available for live remote viewing via video conference.
The third was conducted via WebEx, and all of the sessions were recorded, so employees can watch them when it’s most convenient for them.
