Cultural Competence

Cultural Competence can be defined as the ability to understand and appreciate different cultural perspectives, and to use this knowledge to interact effectively with people from diverse cultures. It is an essential skill for anyone who wants to work in a global marketplace, whether that be in business or academia.
For example, if you are selling products that have religious references or symbols associated with certain cultures, it is important to know how those references might be interpreted. You may also need to learn about local customs if you plan on doing business in a specific country.
