The Intercultural Readiness Check (IRC)

The Intercultural Readiness Check (IRC) is a powerful internationally recognized tool for improving your intercultural effectiveness. It is one of largest sources of information on intercultural competences world-wide.

The assessment will help you to better understand how you currently approach intercultural interactions. What you do well and what you may find difficult. It will identify for you and your IRC coach, the intercultural competences you can develop and train.
