Explore the path to effective and meaningful intercultural dialogue. How do we identify ourselves and overcome identity threats? In this class we will practice ways to ask questions and listen to each other. If someone were to ask you in a group, “tell me about yourself,” what would you say? Each of us is multi-faceted, and these identity characteristics serve as filters to how we process information, engage with people, and make decisions. Participants will develop their dialogue skills and increase their understanding of others.
