CITC's growing team of facilitators, consultants, and researchers aim to model what we teach in culturally intelligent ways. We use our original CI model because it empowers individuals to personalize CI so they can disseminate and operationalize it organizationally for systemic transformation.


We envision a future in which globally-minded leaders

embrace diversity, pursue equity, and build inclusive cultures


We empower people to develop cultural curiosity, lead with empathy, and

create atmospheres of belonging through compassionate action and

Culturally Intelligent solutions


The Three Cultural Intelligence Capabilities inspire our values


We build Cultural Openness by embracing diverse cultural perspectives


We build Cultural Awareness by understanding how others feel, think, and act


We build Cultural Responsiveness by demonstrating

empathy in action

We acknowledge the Native Nations that, for centuries, have inhabited lands in Arizona, California, and Colorado—where our facilitators reside.


These comprise the ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today.


In Phoenix, Arizona, these include the Akimel O’odham (Pima), Piipaash (Maricopa), and Hohokam Native communities. In Tucson, Arizona, it is the O'odham Jeweḍ, Tohono O'odham, Sobaipuri, and Hohokam communities. In Torrance, California, it is the Tongva community. In Denver, Colorado, it is the Arapaho, Cheyenne, Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute), and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ communities.


We acknowledge these people, their ancestors, their descendants, and the land itself. This statement acknowledges that colonialism is not a past event, but an ongoing process of which we are a part.


Increasing our Cultural Intelligence

is a next step in this process.
