An image of "Hello" in different languages with text "Foundations of Intercultural Communication | January 23, 4-6 p,m. Reflect on cultural identities and how they impact your daily interactions.".

Have you ever encountered a situation where you and another person hear the same thing and yet, end up with different interpretations? The way we act, the values and the attitudes we hold are influenced by our identities and the social environments we grew up in. The workshop aims to help you reflect upon your cultural identities and how they impact your daily interactions with others. You will then explore intercultural communication models and identify your styles in different settings. By doing so, we can increase intercultural awareness and develop strategies for communicating and understanding more effectively across differences.

This workshop is part of the Intercultural Learning Program (ILP). Learn more about the Intercultural Learning Program by visiting the Center for International Experience - Programs & Events webpage (Under the "Develop" tab) and find out how the program works to get Co-Curricular Record (CCR) recognition.
