Cultural Intelligence Workshop

You will gain knowledge on what it takes to act in an intercultural context, what the underlying reasons are for why we act and do as we do – and how we, with research based knowledge, best practice and simple tools, can achieve fruitful intercultural working relations. Participants will learn how to bridge cultural gaps, gain insights and operate effectively in a global context.  You will be introduced to the four components of cultural intelligence – drive, knowledge, strategy and action.  Discover why diversity should diversity benefit a group or a team;  the evidence for diversity as a beneficial ingredient; and the difference between benefiting from cultural diversity and failing because of diversity. 

Presented by Yong Chen, Professor of History and Associate Dean Curriculum and Student Services, School of Humanities and Khary Hornsby, Assistant Dean for L.L.M. and International Programs, School of Law.

Lunch will be provided.
