Location: Wherever you are! (Virtual)
Who: Key educational, corporate, and military partners and guests
The CQ® Collective is an exclusive event for key education, corporate, and military CQ partners who are actively implementing cultural intelligence.
This year’s CQ Collective is focused on learning best practices for defining and deepening the impact of CQ.
This will include timely discussions and presentations about how the current realities of Covid-19 and the global conversation on race informs the way we measure the impact of CQ.
Partners from Apple, Google, Harvard, Goldman Sachs, University of Michigan, JP Morgan, MIT, the Pentagon, NYU, Queens University, Qatar Airways, the United Nations, and dozens more have been invited to join us in discussing how to take the impact of the work we do together further and deeper.
Our two-day conversation will start outside the realm of CQ, global engagement, and diversity and inclusion to consider how other fields measure impact.
How do educational institutions measure whether students are learning?
How does a military unit measure whether a mission was successful?
How do networks measure the success of a show?
Then we’ll draw on these insights and some emerging research to inform a series of guided conversations about more effectively measuring the impact of CQ.
A Note From David Livermore
Welcome to the CQ Collective! I wish we were sipping coffee together from the fine china at the Harvard Faculty Club. Sadly, this year, the Collective is a BYOB event. But Covid-19 can’t keep us from the most important part of it—meeting together! So grab your favorite drink and get ready for a lively two days.
We’re here to talk about impact. What kind of impact are we trying to make through our collective efforts in CQ? And how do we measure that? This isn’t an “everyone drink the Kool-aid” kind of conference. We want debate, challenge, and honest conversation about what’s working and what isn’t.
Our socially-distant, politically polarized world needs our collective leadership around CQ now more than ever. So let’s get at it and strategize how we can a more culturally intelligent world.
