Pivoting to Cultural Competence & Unity in Education

Alternate Title: Empowering Students Today to Succeed in an Unpredictable Tomorrow

As we move into a global sharing economy, education must place greater focus on cultural competence and unity. This will empower students to become global citizens with global opportunities, and through culturally responsive teaching, give them the required skills for the future of work and society-at-large.

With 40% of today's jobs about to be automated (source: PwC), we will no longer be defined by what we do, but rather, by who we are. We cannot fail to equip all students with the most critical skills of tomorrow—skills that go beyond the current "college and career-ready" focus. Education leaders must re-evaluate the overall goal of education now while committing to teaching the most important life-skills for a global future, including cultural competence and how to continuously pivot. Today's educators have an unprecedented opportunity and responsibility to achieve equity in education and defeat generations of implicit biases so that all students can develop a healthy curiosity about the world and truly become global citizens.

Pivoting to Cultural Competence & Unity in Business

Former Secretary of State, General Colin Powell

The impact of  Covid-19  on employee productivity and retention is evolving, and employers must empower employees to pivot efficiently, lead, and unite to navigate an unpredictable global environment.

Moreover, Artificial Intelligence is creating the most significant disruption to the workforce we have ever seen, and the human factor in cultivating global networks and relationships is now more important than ever.  As we evolve into an increasingly global society, culturally competent leadership is the only way to pivot, stay relevant, and capitalize on this evolution.

Pivoting Your Passion into Your Profession

Pursue your passion and rally the needed support to be successful.

In this presentation, Ravi encourages attendees to pursue their passions regardless of preconceptions or obstacles. However, following one's dream is not about rebelling against one’s parents, school, or traditional values. It is about collaborating with these influences while broadening horizons and learning to “be the change you wish to see in the world” (Gandhi). A child’s talents, strengths, and interests often differ from their culturally traditional path. As they become teenagers, those same interests can become aspirations that are then in conflict with the expectations of any given family, society, or culture. Ironically, it is this very difference that can give a young adult "the edge,” enabling him or her to achieve greater success.  Moreover, in the age of automation and globalization, the perceived security of a traditional career is no longer the reality.

Attention Educational Organizations:

The impact of the past couple of years on students and teachers worldwide is becoming clear, though how that will ripple through society-at-large and our future is yet to be seen. The onus is on us—education leaders—to do all we can to ensure that students today are prepared to succeed in an unpredictable tomorrow. That is why I am willing to do all I can to help you succeed in this most important task. Click to Read More
