Addressing Conflict in Cross-Cultural Environments: Skills for Living and Working 
Professor A. Peter Castro
Saturday, February 16, 2013
10:00 am to 2:00 pm
204 Maxwell Hall
Syracuse University

We celebrate multi-culturalism, yet cultural differences are often portrayed as serving as barriers to effective communication. Cross-cultural interactions offer enormous opportunities for mutual learning, but cultural differences are also seen as sparking or exacerbating conflicts from the inter-personal to the global levels. Whether from a career or personal perspective, one needs a sophisticated and sensitive understanding of culture and cultural differences. For those interested in conflict management in our increasingly globalized and multi-cultural society, such awareness and appreciation are essential. 

This workshop will seek to address to provide knowledge and skills that will help you communicate and act more effectively cross-culturally. We will introduce cutting-edge ideas about the nature of culture and its relationship to culture. Attention will be placed on developing and practicing skills that will aid in cross-cultural analysis and interactions. The workshop will be interactive with simulations and participatory activities.

The workshop will be led by Professor A. Peter Castro.

Free & open to all! Morning coffee and lunch will be provided.
