This workshop takes a reflective, interactive, and constructive approach towards developing and improving intercultural communication skills or intercultural competence. Participants will be introduced to concepts and models pertaining to culture, cultural differences, communication differences, and intercultural competence. They will have the opportunity to develop some awareness about their own cultural identities, differences, biases, and communication styles. They will briefly assess their intercultural competence – knowledge, skills, and attitudes – and consider how they may develop intercultural competence or improve their intercultural competence level in relation to their individual workplace roles, contexts, and goals.
