MOVING BEYOND INTEGRATION: STRIVING TOWARDS AN INCLUSIVE WORKFORCE IN TIMES OF CHANGE

 

CORE Platform held a series of three workshops, which aimed to explore the unused potential of foreign workers in Malta. With these workshops, tools that can be used in fostering inclusion in the workplace were developed. The workshops offered training in specific areas such as intercultural competency building, communication and negotiation skills, strategy and planning with an intercultural team, and moving beyond bias, amongst other things.

1ST WORKSHOP: WEDNESDAY 26TH SEPTEMBER 2018 FROM 3PM – 6PM

THE WORKSHOPS

There will be three overarching workshops. The first one will deal with socio-cultural literacy and will be an informative workshop about identifying the needs to function efficiently and to form an effective inclusive team. Thus, challenges will be addressed together with the main strategic priorities. The workshop will also go into how we can appreciate each other's uniqueness and maximise potential.

The second workshop will address the competitive advantages and build on the strategic priorities discussed in the previous workshop. This will be followed by a third workshop that will look into a vision for the future and developing a long term strategy.
