Get Global Ready: Thriving in an Intercultural Workplace

Workshop | March 30 | 1:30-4:30 p.m. | International House, Home Room

 International House

To be successful on our campus, staff must be able to collaborate with a wide range of people. As UC Berkeley is becoming more and more global, understanding different cultural styles is paramount, as is making constructive efforts to bridge significant gaps in these various styles. By registering for this 3 hour workshop you will:

• Gain access to an online survey called GlobeSmart (normally $20)
• Receive a personalized profile of your preferred intercultural work style
• Be able to compare your profile to the average profile from another country and/or other individuals at UC Berkeley

Having completed the GlobeSmart profile as pre-work, you will then attend the workshop to gain increased cultural self-awareness, greater understanding of other styles and experience style-switching to explore how you can adapt for more effective intercultural interactions. The goal is that you return to your workplace with stronger intercultural awareness, knowledge and skills, leading to a more productive and inclusive campus environment.
