Why DEI and Cultural Competence are Key to Successful Fundraising Efforts
The ability to recognize and effectively respond to cultural differences in communication and conflict styles is critically important within an industry and organization. Please join AFP Palm Beach for an interactive breakfast workshop led by Jamie Beale Howe, CEO of JBH Enterprises, where we will dig deeper into our ability to effectively communicate interculturally and discuss how this can impact our fundraising efforts.

Upon registration, you will receive a link to the Intercultural Conflict Style (ICS) assessment, which you must complete prior to the event.
The ICS assessment is intended to:
- Increase cultural self-understanding of your own communication and conflict resolution approach
- Increase cultural other-understanding—of diverse approaches others use to communicate ideas and resolve conflict
- Use culturally responsive strategies in communicating your goals and interests to others
- More accurately interpret the statements and actions of others
Advanced registration is required. We look forward to seeing you!
