Task Force Report: U.S. Education Reform and National Security - Cultural Agility Needed

Jun 3, 2012

Citing Caligiuri's co-authored report for the Army Research Institute on developing cross-cultural competencies, cultural agility was discussed in the Task Force Report:  U.S. Education Reform and National Security by Condoleezza Rice and Joel Klein.  They wrote that a "failure to learn about global cultures has serious consequences... 'cultural  learning' and 'cultural agility' are critical skills in the military...U.S. secretary of defense Leon Panetta wrote in an August 2011 memo. '[The Department of Defense] has made progress in establishing a foundation for these capabilities, but we need to do more to meet current and future demands.'"
