Today's world is increasingly diverse. Those that know how to communicate accurately across cultures have a competitive advantage. In this presentation, we will define and/or examine:

  • Culture and co-culture
  • Three major levels of diversity
  • Five important elements of culture 

Once we have taken a look at the ways in which we may differ from one another, we will then explore how these differences can impact interpersonal communication.  

Finally, we will explore how to incorporate the topic of Intercultural/Diversity Communication in your training programs.
