Assignment 1: developing and managing multi-cultural teams

Prepare a six to eight-page Word document as a training handout for  managers, addressing each of the points listed.  Include an executive  summary and conclude by summarizing your handout by describing three  important concepts you learned while researching this topic.

As  the diversity manager of a global company, you have developed a deep  appreciation for the importance of understanding multi-cultural teams in  the workplace. However, you know that some of the managers struggle  with developing and managing multicultural teams in your company. There  seems to be a need for company-wide information and training on the  topic of “Developing and Managing Multi-Cultural Teams.”

You decide to prepare a training handout for the next managers’ meeting, that emphasizes the following points:

  • Dimensions of a multi-cultural team
  • Discrimination laws and their impact on managing a multi-cultural team
  • Affirmative action programs and their impact on managing a multi-cultural team
  • Building an inclusive culture within the team
  • Challenges of managing a multi-cultural team
  • Recommendations for improving communications within a multi-cultural team
  • Modeling and leading diversity acceptance and change

Prepare a six to eight-page Word document as a training handout for  managers, addressing each of the points listed.  Include an executive  summary and conclude by summarizing your handout by describing three  important concepts you learned while researching this topic.

Use at least three resources in addition to your textbook – Managing Diversity, 9th Edition.   to justify  your responses. Apply current APA standards for writing style to your  work.
