As you are well aware, working with international cultures can be a challenge for anyone. For those in the education field, these interactions can be even more tough – there’s a grade or tuition payment or job at stake! The U.S. Department of Commerce is pleased to present a 1 hour webinar to help ease this challenge. Our speakers include Brandeis International Business School Professor Andy Molinsky, who presents a scientific approach to handling intercultural challenges, and Kari Heistad, founder and CEO of Culture Coach International, a firm which specializes in developing cultural competency and diversity management skills for businesses and employees. They will offer a fresh take on handling sticky cultural situations that come up in offices, hallways, and quads alike.
Date: March 25, 2014, 1 PM EDT
This session will be recorded.
