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.
The workshop will be presented by Dr. Peter Castro, Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology and Robert D. McClure Professor of Teaching Excellence.
The workshop is FREE and OPEN to all! Morning coffee and lunch will be provided.
