Abstract: Globalization is here. It has been forth seen. Over the last few decades, international entities, such as the United Nations, were created. Soft laws, such as the Millennium Development Goals, were developed to form global governance to oversee interactions amongst nation-states. Partnerships and qualms have manifested from different perspectives, especially when processing the work towards mutual goals. Presented is a literature review that explores ways to build cultural intelligence and cultural adaptation in order to increase intercultural competency and cross-cultural exchanges through non-governmental agencies, such as Women’s Global Connection. This particular research introduces each component and delves into literature that scrutinizes related issues.


Keywords: Globalization; Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs); Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity (DMIS); Cultural Adaptation; Cultural Intelligence; Intercultural Competency.
