Understanding Cross-Cultural Experiences and Implicit Biases

In this session, participants will increase their understanding of culturally responsive practices and gain tools for working and communicating effectively across cultural differences. We will use the culture of learning theory, Mitchell R. Hammer, Ph.D.'s Intercultural Conflict Style Inventory (ICS), and Dr. Milton J. Bennett's Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity (DMIS) to prove that one size indeed doesn't fit all.

As leaders, it is our responsibility to always ask questions, voice challenges, share ideas/success stories, make room to learn new skills and create opportunities to practice interacting across multiple lines of differences. The challenging task is to lean into the unknown areas of discussion and content that are often avoided in order to cultivate your transformation and growth.
