10 a.m.-2 p.m.: Cross-Cultural Communication
We celebrate multi-culturalism, yet cultural differences are often portrayed as serving as barriers to effective communication. Cross-cultural interactions offer enormous opportunities for mutual learning, but cultural differences are also seen as sparking or exacerbating conflicts from the inter-personal to the global levels. Whether from a career or personal perspective, one needs a sophisticated and sensitive understanding of culture and cultural differences. For those interested in conflict management in our increasingly globalized and multi-cultural society, such awareness and appreciation are essential.
This workshop will seek to provide knowledge and skills that will help you communicate and act more effectively cross-culturally. We will introduce cutting-edge ideas about the nature of culture and its relationship to effective communication. Attention will be placed on developing and practicing skills that will aid in cross-cultural analysis and interactions. The workshop will be interactive with simulations and participatory activities and will be presented by Dr. A. Peter Castro, who is Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology.
Our workshops are FREE and OPEN to all! Light breakfast provided along with Lunch catered by Appethaizing! To register for this training, please send an email to CMC@maxwell.syr.edu that includes the following information:
