The Conflict Management Center is proud to announce the next workshop in our conflict skills series, “Cross-Cultural Communication.” This free workshop will be held on Saturday, November 5th, from 10am to 2pm, in 204 Maxwell.

Workshop description:
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.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
