S02 | E02 Cultural Competency with Shahzia Noorally

Your organization talks the talk. As leadership, it’s also your responsibility to walk the walk.

From the very beginning in recruitment and onboarding, company values should be apparent. On today’s episode of the podcast, we learn from Shahzia Noorally the best way to accomplish this through storytelling and building a culture surrounding vulnerability about personal experiences. Share your story, look for connection, and allow space for your people to be human in the workplace.

Listen in as we discuss cultural context and its place in workplace mental health, compassion and intentionality in engagement, and vulnerable connection in an isolating workforce. Shahzia’s insights into cultural competency provide practical and actionable steps your organization can take to elevate employee experience.

“This is the one area we keep coming back to to go, “Are we making this as accessible as possible?” People are always saying, “I’m in back to back meetings,” we’re all on Zoom, right?
