Ongoing

Goals:

(Further) education in the areas of intercultural competence, diversity, inclusion, non-formal education and international youth work

Within the framework of the IZ Academy, the IZ offers experience-oriented and innovative training on topics from the areas of diversity, diversity competence and transculturality. During the two-day training courses, participants develop options for action that make them fit for the diverse everyday world – in the working world, as volunteers and in their daily dealings with their immediate environment.

“This course offers a great opportunity
to interactively and reflexively deal with his own roots,
to question his own prejudices and
to get to know the foreign (what is rather inside oneself)
– furthermore there are exciting speakers, experiments
and enough space to exchange experiences.“

Lars Roesky, Course participant

Course “Diversity and Intercultural Competencies

The course “Diversity and Intercultural Competencies” takes place once a year and is aimed at people who deal with cultural diversity in their everyday and professional lives and who would like to expand their intercultural competencies.

Target group

organizations, companies, schools, individuals

“The course is a great mixture between theory and practice. The diversity of the topic
is reflected in the program,
the methodology and the selection of the speakers.
All in all a successful total work of art and highly recommended for everyone,
which are used in a diverse
environment or would like to work.”

Gudrun Rabussay-Schwald  of Amnesty Austria, course participant 2018

Seminars on intercultural competence and diversity for organizations and companies

Within the framework of the IZ Academy, the IZ offers seminars and workshops in organizations and companies that are tailored to the respective needs. The focus is on the topics of diversity and inclusion, intercultural competence, prejudice-conscious education, intercultural communication and intercultural conflict management.

„Die Teilnehmenden sind oft ganz erstaunt, wie viele Diversitätsanteile
in ihnen selbst vorhanden sind und wo sie selbst
mit Vorurteilen konfrontiert sind. Das hilft ihnen, die Problematik
bei anderen besser zu verstehen.“

Alice Scridon, Trainerin in der IZ Academy
