We Are Social Architects Who Move People Towards Inclusivity In A Diverse World
CQ Africa Assists Organisations In Creating Inclusive Environments That Are More Engaged, Innovative, Profitable, And Connected By Providing Research-based, Innovative Solutions For Leveraging Diversity.
CULTURAL INTELLIGENCE, or CQ, is a globally recognised way of assessing and improving effectiveness in culturally diverse situations. It is rooted in rigorous, academic research conducted across more than 100 countries and it is being used by leading companies, universities, and governments around the world.
Using CQ to Cultivate a Sense of Belonging
Cultivating a Sense of Belonging is a journey, not a destination. We never fully arrive because we are always learning and growing and things are constantly changing.
Yet it is still reasonable to expect positive and measurable results along the way. Our DEI work focuses on partnering with organisations around the globe to integrate CQ into their DEI initiatives. More specifically, we facilitate evidence-based processes that support an organisation’s DEI Journey in ways that influence positive individual behaviour, systems change and overall organisational performance.
How CQ Supports DEI in Cultivating a Sense of Belonging
Cultural Intelligence, or CQ, is the foundation and strategic link to diversity, equity and inclusion. For years, the case has been that more diversity equals improved organisational performance. But you can’t expect diverse groups to work together effectively and improve performance if they lack the skills to do so. Cultural intelligence (CQ) is the foundation and strategic link that ensures your DEI efforts lead to meaningful and sustainable results. The same holds true for any attempt to Cultivate a Sense of Belonging within organisations.
