Diversity competence includes understanding cultural values and customs other than one's own. Participating in celebrations and other cultural events is one of the best ways to broaden one's perspectives. This is why travel is regarded as so enriching. To assist the community in this area of development, the Partners for Workplace Diversity provide this list of events. We stress events that are hosted by specific cultural groups seeking to include the larger community as well as events that are educational in focus. These events are excellent educational opportunities for getting to know this region's cultures in a context that permits interaction with local communities. Knowing its local communities is important to delivering quality service to an area. We hope that businesses encourage cultural development by bringing events like these to the attention of their employees and customers through their normal communication channels. We also invite you to join the Partners in supporting undertakings such as those identified here.
