At the core of the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion rests the need to recognize cultural difference and learn how to navigate it. Intercultural competence refers to a set of attitudes and skills that enhance appropriate interactions across cultural contexts. It entails the development of self-awareness, effective communication, mutual respect, and empathic interactions. In this training, participants will be able to explore the role of this competence in the design of inclusive and respectful interactions, either in the classroom, at the workplace, or in relation to broader audiences.
