Event description
In this interactive live session in English we offer useful tips and tools to keep your head above (Belgian) water.

About this event

Expect a brief introduction to some crucial concepts of intercultural competence, a set of first aid tools that will help you reflect on your personal experiences.

The key question we address is: what does intercultural awareness consist of and how can it support you in your professional plans and projects in what some people would call 'the strangest country in the world'?

The session will be moderated by Gunilla de Graef. Gunilla is currently working both as a lecturer and as a policy advisor at the Karel de Grote University College. She has over 15 years of experience as a diversity manager and trainer in both profit and not-for-profit organisations. In addition, Gunilla conducted research on intercultural competence and dealing with culture shock at the CIMIC (Center for Intercultural Management and International Communication, Thomas More Mechelen). She has participated in numerous international projects, developing toolboxes on the same subject.

Practical

While there is some theory to get through, the workshop will be interactive though. So expect to be asked for your opinion, feedback and experience.
