BC HRMA’s Cultural Competency Toolkit – the development was managed by Diversity Clues
It is a map for how to recruit and integrate Internationally Trained Immigrants (ITI s) into the workplace in a “culturally competent way”, where recruiters:
- understand and make allowances for cultural differences of ITI s,
- make an effort at each step of the process to go beyond cultural differences and
- give full possible consideration to the real skills and abilities of ITI s.
It provides helpful culturally-competent suggestions at each stage of the recruitment process, including tips on job advertising, interview questions and selection process, as well as tips to recruiters on how to avoid typical communication pitfalls with ITI s. It contains useful resources such as where to get international credentials assessed and which local organizations might help in tapping into an immigrant talent pool.
