What is Cultural Intelligence?
Cultural intelligence, CQ, is defined as the ability to interpret gestures and behaviors different from your own in the correct cultural context; in other words your ability to function and thrive in culturally diverse situations (Ang, Van Dyne & Rockstuhl, 2013; Earley & Mosakowski, 2004). However, this terminology is most often used in the business realm. Our use of the term cultural intelligence is a bit different. We recognize that often the difference between race and culture is conflated and typically interchangeable in people’s minds. As such, we see cultural intelligence as understanding yourself as a racial-cultural being and how that influences and impacts the way you see and situate yourself in both your local and global context.
