Developing Intercultural Competence


The workshop is designed to develop intercultural awareness and cross-cultural communication competence.  Not only do we tend to dress differently, we often think and interact in different ways.  Participants of the workshop will be led to reflect on their own value orientations and communication styles.  A game or simulation will be incorporated to facilitate cross-cultural experience.  Given that we all naturally think and interact based on our own cultural programming, cross-cultural communication skills are essential in understanding and effectively working with people from different cultures.
