Islamophobia: Is it Baked into Britain?--by Neil Payne

Following on from his recent webinars on Islamophobia for SIETAR Europa Direct members, Neil will be asking SIETAR UK members to consider the current state of affairs in the UK and how it impacts us as interculturalists.

A TCK (third culture kid) with roots in both the Middle East and England, Neil studied Islam for 20 years including time in Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt, Turkey and Malaysia. As a trainer working in the UK and covering Muslim-majority countries he has encountered Islamophobia frequently enough to recognise how deeply woven into the fabric of British culture it is. This session will hear his reflections on its roots, how it’s changed over the last decade and what we can practically do to bring about positive change.

This is a Zoom event. Registration will open shortly.

Global Fitness in Practice: Reflections on how to develop and strengthen it--by Helen Spencer-Oatey

A recent LinkedIn post, by someone working in Global DEI, was titled “Knowledge is insufficient to change behaviour”[1]. When I saw this, my initial reaction was ‘of course’. Yet this is actually what we often do – we give information to the people we are teaching or training. This can be important and useful, but we all know it is insufficient. When Peter Franklin, Domna Lazidou and I set out to write our latest book, [globalpeopleconsulting.com/books]Global Fitness for Global People: How to Manage and Leverage Cultural Diversity at Work(2022, Castledown), we grappled with this question: how can we write a book that isn’t just ‘knowledge transfer’?

In this webinar, I’ll introduce you to the design that we decided on, both the big picture framework, as well as the more detailed elements, such as case studies, tools, and reflection activities. I’ll explain and illustrate how all of them are useful and necessary for helping bring about change – both attitudinal and behavioural. And I’ll suggest how you can transfer these techniques to you own training sessions.

Helen Spencer-Oateyis Managing Director ofGlobalPeople Consulting Ltd. (GPC)and Emeritus Professor of Intercultural Communication at the University of Warwick, UK. Working at the interface of psychology and communication, she is internationally renowned for her writings on intercultural rapport, relationships and communication. She has developed a wide range of popular diagnostic tools and professional development resources for organisations, teams and individuals – now available viaGlobalPeople Consulting Ltd.

The goals of intercultural education and training are often defined in terms of abstract ideals—e.g. intercultural competence, critical consciousness, cultural intelligence—that are hard to relate to everyday experience, and largely unrelated to our understanding of how the mind actually works. Research in cognitive psychology and cultural neuroscience, for example, shows us how cultural patterns shape…
