Topic: 
Managing in a Multi-Cultural Environment

It has long been argued that companies that want to capitalize on innovation must develop programs that support a diverse and inclusive workplace. These policies are often centered on "the practice or quality of including people from a range of different social and ethnic backgrounds and of different genders, sexual orientations, etc." (Oxford Languages). The opportunities and challenges of promoting and managing multi-cultural teams are too often overlooked or only a secondary consideration. This is unfortunate since the workforce of the future will require leaders that are able to untangle the complexity of managing in a multi-cultural environment.
