Working Across Cultures

What do you do when you visit a new culture? Work in a new culture? This workshop aims to provide participants with the basic framework for understanding societal cultural differences and with tools for interacting across cultures. Role plays will be used to enable participants to more fully immerse themselves in other cultures and to understand what it is like interacting in a different culture. Participants will walk away from the workshop with not only an understanding of how one can move away from low-level stereotyping to sophisticated stereotyping but also how one can code switch across cultures.
