Description

A Mercer Island Parent Edge Presentation: “What I Said and What I Meant: Improving Cross Cultural Communication”

Humans communicate on many levels: spoken language, tone, body language, style and personality. The fact that we have complex cultural identities and a host of differing past experiences increases the probability of cross-cultural miscommunications. This workshop presents major cross-cultural communication theories, ways that cultural values, power, privilege and differences affect the way we communicate, tools for questioning assumptions, and ways to improve cross-cultural communications skills.

Free event! For Parents/Adults and High School Students

Please register by 5 pm the day prior to the program to receive a Zoom link.
