🔊 Abstract: There is good evidence that diverse teams can be more productive and effective than homogeneous teams, but diverse teams generate more issues around ethical interaction. This workshop will provide you with tools to be more aware of when/how issues arise and strategies to work more productively and fairly in across cultures, disciplines and languages. These tools will be immediately applicable in your current projects, and also form a solid basis of intercultural communication for working in international and multinational contexts.
