What I Said and What I Meant: Improving Cross Cultural Communication
September 14, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm$30 – $40
Humans communicate on many levels: spoken language, tone, body language, style and personality. The fact that we have complex cultural identities and a host of differing past experiences increases the probability of cross-cultural miscommunications. This workshop presents major cross-cultural communication theories, ways that cultural values, power, privilege and differences affect the way we communicate, tools for questioning assumptions, and ways to improve cross-cultural communications skills.
About the Speaker:
Rosetta Eun Ryong Lee, experienced educator and diversity consultant whose passion and expertise ranges from science and ethics for middle school students, gender equity in STEM education, cross-cultural communication, gender bias, relational aggression, identity development, anti-bullying, brain and learning, and more. Driven toward empowering youth to make a better future for themselves and their communities, and at the same time working with adults to help create inclusive communities that will help empower youth of all races, ethnic origins, genders, abilities, sexual orientations, and other identities.
