Our Vision

A World that Values and Respects Everyone

Our Mission

To create unity, equity, and inclusion through intercultural understanding and appreciation

Our Core Belief

We believe that progress starts at the individual level. To begin the journey, we work on each individual’s intercultural competence. Intercultural competence is a mindset and a skill that is needed to foster diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging within any environment.

Our Vision

What is intercultural competence?

Intercultural competence is an individual’s and organization’s ability
to recognize and adapt to cultural differences in order to:

  • build stronger cross-cultural relationships
  • create inclusive and equitable workplaces
  • achieve organizational and social goals

Simply put, it is a mindset and skill that allows an individual to work effectively across cultural differences based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, ableness, generation, and many more identities that make us different. Since organizations are made up of individuals, starting at the people level, the entire organization is transformed to a higher level of intercultural competence.

An interculturally incompetent organization will commonly struggle to genuinely and authentically foster diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Such an organization often gets caught in the many misconceptions about diversity work (what we call diversity clutter) and will go in circles until people in the organization are fatigued and stuck. Having intercultural competence as the foundation eliminates this diversity fatigue and creates a more inspired organization.

Intercultural competence is measured at both the individual level and the organizational level by using the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI®). IC Edge develops a program to help your team improve its skills and competence with the Intercultural Development Continuum™. This process takes the guesswork out of moving your staff and organization to higher levels of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.

What Is Intercultural Competence?

“I’ve traveled the world extensively, leading workshops with 30 different cultures. My global exposure has been incredibly insightful and has heightened my cultural competence. However, this workshop opened my eyes to the nuances of culture and how to ‘connect’ on a different level by building strong cultural relationships. It was my ‘missing piece’ to drive transformational behavior shifts and outcomes.”

Scott A. Morris, International Sales Development Leader
