Race and Equity Workshop: What I Said and What I Meant: Improving Cross Cultural Communication

May 12, 2017 @ 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Humans communicate on many levels: spoken language, tone, body language, style and personality. The fact that we have complex cultural identities and a host of differing past experiences increases the probability of cross-cultural miscommunications. This workshop provides an in-depth focus on major cross-cultural communication theories, ways that cultural values, power, privilege and differences affect the way we communicate, tools for questioning assumptions, and ways to improve cross-cultural communications skills.
