The Communications Committee maximizes the organizational and member benefit of SIETAR Europa communications by managing the media currently in use and creating what is needed in terms of tools and protocols for seamless and timely interaction, focused on the successful promotion of our organizational and professional vision, objectives and activities.
Community Development Committee
The Community Development Committee supports the development and organizational strengthening of national SIETAR organizations and SIGs. Creating new ways of capacity building for active board members and volunteers of national SIETAR organizations and SIG leaders is one of the priorities. Our aim is that national SIETAR organizations and SIGs continuously learn from each other, inspire each other with best practices, discuss topics they consider relevant, and don’t need to re-invent the wheel. In that way, SIETAR organizations and SIGs can do what they’re intended for: enabling effective intercultural relations.
Digital Services Team
The Digital Services Team provides tactical and strategic technical support to the SIETAR Europa organization, Board, Committees and members. We are currently guiding the design, development and rollout across SIETAR Europa of a new platform aimed at improving service and benefits to members. We also maintain the website and support the Zoom online meeting/webinar platform.
Member Benefits Committee
The Member Benefits Committee creates space for SIETAR members to exchange knowledge with and connect to the greater SIETAR community and beyond by organising and hosting interactive virtual events as well as managing the rolling online platform Curiously Intercultural. The different event types encompass webinars, Cross-Cultural Coffee Breaks and the Intercultural Playground series as well as the annual winter networking event.
External Relations Committee
The External Relations Committee builds short & long-lasting mutually beneficial relationships with organizations that advocate for intercultural understanding, human rights, and elimination of discrimination, with organizations that support openness, tolerance, and diversity&inclusion. The Committee invests their continued efforts to promote SIETAR Europa as a leading world community of professionals in the intercultural field, and a resource for its members for continuous professional development, as well as a hub for knowledge, best practice, and pioneering innovation in the intercultural field worldwide.
