Thank you for this opportunity! It is very much appreciated!!!"

Particularly in cities there are so many people from so many cultures to meet."

"I'm the Diversity and Inclusion Advocate for my office and I think the culture wizard tool presents an amazing opportunity to help my colleagues understand one-another's differences and also better understand the practices of off shore vendors and international business partners. I think often cultural misunderstandings are labeled as personality differences when in reality it is just a matter of clashing culture norms. I'm joining the Generation differences webinar later tonight!"

"Overall, I enjoyed the interactive learning involved with the CultureWizard site. It helps to feel involved in the learning, and allows me to feel a part of the learning rather than sifting through mounds of information. This method also allows me to retain what I learned because I can more easily remember the means of how it was presented, and therefore recall the facts easier."

"I enjoyed the cultural awareness simulation, as it was a great way to apply the country profile information in a real-world business setting. I appreciated that the exercise covered multiple, distinct countries as it broadened my awareness of parts of the world that I haven't visited. This is a great resource that I hope my colleagues are leveraging. "

The culture wizard website is really helpful and now I know things about other cultures and where I can find information about another places so easily. The assessments, the Culture day, the games, those are all great initiatives, congratulations!"
Analyst, Global Engineering Company
"Wow, just wow. I want to let your team know that you are doing an excellent job at informing those that might not have the cultural experience the proper way to show respect for those that are from different countries and how to behave outside of the U.S. I found the interactive challenge to be light years beyond any culture sensitivity training I have ever encountered. The use of humor and interactive landscape made me feel like a normal day in the office! I look forward to being able to participate in more culture training and definitely more interactive case scenarios. I've got to go now and set the DVR to record Game of Thrones since I forgot to do that!"

Quality Engineer, Global Consumer Packaged Goods Manufacturer
"Culture Wizard has been incredibly helpful in understanding of many situations, some in hindsight. Also it had removed the nagging sense of guilt one feels of having done something wrong. Culture Day celebration in my case is more a personal event where I recognise the varying cultures I work with or indirectly interact. Being a new employee of the current division it also helps me to be have the necessary tools to understand and connect and to know the correct way to do a thing. "
Assistant Vice President, International Banking And Financial Services
"Culture Day experience: Attending the webinar was my first interaction with RW-3, and I was very impressed with the speakers, as well as the information presented. In fact, I am forwarding the links of the recording to my colleagues, as I think it is solid information and well presented. Really enjoyed the ‘game’ – very creative! CultureWizard Overall: I have just begun to explore the overall site, and can see that there is A LOT of information! I like that there is a good mix of reading and video, and everything is very professionally done. So far, I don’t have any constructive critiques! Excellent site."

"Culture day game was a really useful and entertaining exercise. I mainly deal with business partners in India and the Philippines and it was nice to get some insight into other cultures I’m not normally working with but may well be in the future!

Also often recommend this to my team and have put a link on our department intranet page"

I especially like the iPhone App and have used it with friends when they express concerns about communicating with coworkers, students, and service industry workers.The mapping of cultural values across countries is especially useful and has helped me in my work with a London counterpart. plan on continuing with the coursework on the website. Oh, and the Culture Day game was just the right length! "
Business Analyst, Multinational mass media and information firm
"As a foreigner working in the U.S. and planning to keep moving on to at least a few more countries before I settle down somewhere, I really appreciate the quality and structure of the information I found on the CultureWizard site. I found the Culture Day experience fun and engaging, enjoyed the Leverage Your Global Team’s Diversity presentation and learned a great deal through the WorkingWith series.he only development feedback I could give is that for the quizzes, I often felt like some of the wrong answers seemed close to what I have learned during the course, and I would have appreciated a short side note on why those statements were incorrect."
