What is the CQ Summit?


The CQ Summit convenes international leaders and researchers to collaboratively explore how to make our workplaces, communities, and world a more culturally intelligent place. The 2019 CQ Summits will focus on taking our collaborative efforts in CQ to the next level so that together we can scale new heights!

Each summit will offer all 3 certifications, as well as a couple days to meet with other CQ researchers and practitioners in the region. Networking and collaboration with other CQ Certified Professionals will be built in throughout the summit during both the scheduled sessions, as well as through informal gatherings and events.
