  Bridging Cultural Differences — ISSS Intercultural Workshop Series

Presenter: Thorunn Bjarnadottir and Alex Cleberg, International Student and Scholar Services
Location: Northrop Auditorium, Founders Room
Register Now - This workshop is almost full

When interacting with those from around the world, an understanding of the relevant values of all participants will help to create positive connections. While it may be easy to adapt to obvious differences in eye contact or handshakes, it is more difficult to take actionable steps to address more hidden value differences, such as hierarchy or independence.

Participating in this experiential workshop will allow you to identify problems or opportunities that stem from cultural value differences. As a result of this identification, you will be able to effectively connect with students and colleagues from different cultural backgrounds.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify important value differences that affect working and service relationships
  • Feel a deeper an appreciation of the significance cultural values play in building positive connections
  • Develop specific approaches to react appropriately to various value differences

This workshop is part of the ISSS Intercultural Workshop series for UMN staff. See the full list and learn more about ISSS's training for UMN staff, faculty and departments at isss.umn.edu/training/intercultural.html.
