Communicating Across Cultures
Whether you are operating a global business or working within a highly diverse American workplace, effective intercultural communication skills are critical. In this series, you will go well beyond a look at customs to dig deeply into the concepts and research that help explain why we behave the way we do.
Our featured Chief Communication Officers, experts in corporate culture, are guided by Jim O’Rourke, Teaching Professor of Management & Organization and Amanda McKendree, Arthur F. and Mary J. O’Neil Director of the Fanning Center for Business Communication. We will analyze intercultural situations in the workplace to see these theories at work in practical ways. Along with increasing self-awareness of our individual communication styles, we will explore how to become more effective and ethical intercultural communicators.
This four-week program will give you the opportunity to view pre-recorded short talk videos available at any time on ThinkND, participate in weekly online meetings on Fridays at 12 pm EDT, and connect with other participants through an online discussion forum.
The series is co-sponsored by the Mendoza College of Business, the Eugene D. Fanning Center for Business Communication at Mendoza, Notre Dame International and the Keough School’s McKenna Center for Human Development and Global Business. Read the press release here.
