Intercultural Communication: Navigating the New Multicultural Landscape
Tuesday, March 6
Commons Lecture Hall
Dinner provided, registration required: contact Ebonie Atkins
Race, ethnicity, class, and gender are always "hot topics" to discuss. But did you know that those 4 areas govern almost 95% of your communication interactions everyday? Did you also know that in this society, there is no possible way to avoid any of those areas? So what do we do? Ignore them? By 2020, nearly 58% of the population of the U.S. will NOT be of Caucasian/ Euro/ Anglo American decent. So, it is of utmost importance that we begin to engage these issues head on in a way that promotes peace, justice, and good intercultural communication skills. Come join us as we engage in not just these issues, but also in intra-personal communication styles and in finding ways to be a good listener in order to be a great communicator across cultural and ethnic landscapes.
