Despite decades of globalization and multiculturalism, misconceptions about those deemed “culturally different” prevail, often leading to conflict. Yet, cross-cultural interactions are ubiquitous, making the need for positive and effective communication more pressing than ever.
But, how do we get there? This workshop will help you develop skills to foster better communication across cultural differences. It will provide you with an opportunity to reflect about the meaning of “culture,” a word often invoked but little understood, and its role in shaping our perceptions and interactions.
Building on anthropological notions, real world examples, and practical exercises, the workshop will promote an understanding of cultural differences as rich elements of the human experience rather than barriers that divide us. These reflections will be the foundation for concrete practices of communication that are respectful of differences, and useful for finding common ground to achieve mutually satisfactory goals.
The workshop is FREE and open to all, but please register in advance. To register please fill out this form.
