INTERSECTIONS LIGHT (3-days): Intersections Light (3-days): Leveraging connections between 2 of 4 key Differences narratives for greater impact: intercultural communication and diversity, equity & inclusion

With the premise that the intersecting areas between the Intercultural communications, Diversity & inclusion, Global competence, and Global learning can enrich our work and strengthen how we help individuals, groups, and organizations develop across differences, Join this course to familiarise yourself with the Differences narratives that you may not yet have incorporated into your practice and/or scholarship.

In this ‘advanced beginner’ course, we explore intersections between two Differences narratives —Intercultural communications and Diversity, equity & inclusion. Using expert inputs, discussions, and application to real-life case studies, critical incidents, and challenges, this course provides an overview of the key underlying concepts, models, and contributions of each narrative. We explore how and where there may be overlaps as well as where—and why—there are apparent gaps.

We then apply these insights and conduct, together, a multi-faceted analysis of real-life questions, challenges, and case studies to inform approaches and tools for supporting ourselves and others in developing across differences, engaging in meaningful dialogue, and improving connections.

This course is for you if are a consultant/trainer/multiplier/educator wishing to:

  • Expand your conceptual horizons by diving into Intercultural communication and Diversity, equity & inclusion,
  • Identify Differences areas, concepts, or models that are relevant to your work and that you would like to continue exploring beyond this course.
  • Identify distinctions and overlaps between these narratives to advance and expand your understanding of how you and those you work with can develop across differences,
  • Work with real-life questions, challenges, and case studies to broaden your repertoire of approaches and tools to help individuals, groups, and organizations develop across differences.
