At our next DMeetUp of the 4th of April, at 3 p.m. CET, our colleague from Canada (yes, SIETAR DMs live also in Canada!) Nitin Deckha offers to explore together the topic of
Adding Intercultural Competence to the Mix of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
Intercultural trainers and practitioners and diversity, equity and inclusion specialists have evolved their craft apart from each other. Well, it’s time to break the silos! In this DMeetUp, participants will be encouraged to consider how key intercultural insights into ethnocentrism, cultural worldviews, conflict and communication styles can intersect and support the important work of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.
