Workshop Summary:

Our life’s work is building bridges among differences, softening barriers to living life with cultural others, and probing the mysteries of unknown places and peoples. We do so not only to manage more appropriately, teach more wisely, and train more effectively, but also sometimes for the sheer pleasure of experiencing differences.

The core tool of our trade is intercultural competence, that illusive set of skills, knowledge, and attitudes that is so essential on our global stage.
