Cross/Intercultural Competencies and Intercultural Effectiveness

Cross/Intercultural Competencies and Intercultural Effectiveness:  Engaging in Discourse and Action
Cross/intercultural competencies and intercultural effectiveness are terms frequently used when referring to understanding and effectively engaging with people from other cultures and perspectives and practices different from our own. Being open to engaging with differences invites both opportunities and challenges. Let’s explore this engagement through multiple lenses.
In this session, and drawing from a reflective process, we will explore some of the tensions and how we might take them up as a pathway – an opportunity to achieve a deeper level of awareness, understanding, and engagement with cultural differences. We will share one faculty’s eighteen month journey in deepening the dialogue with regard to advancing cross/intercultural humility and engagement.  As part of this work, we invite participants to reflect on their own role(s) and work in their area (Faculty/School/Unit) to identify how they might contribute to advancing cultural competency understandings in their work and through their relationships with others.
