Unleash the Power of our Differences Series

Cross Cultural Communications

The series continues with an exploration of your vision and purpose and how to live in solidarity across differences with others.

Join Elliott Butler-Cisneros to explore the striking variety of ways that people express and live into their deepest cultural values, and how to bridge our differences. This is another powerful workshop in the Unleash the Power of Our Differences series.

In this session you will:

  • Reveal your own cultural values
  • Understand how others are different from you
  • Learn how to begin to bridge these differences, with power and grace
  • Examine two models for understanding your cultural styles and values
  • Recognize and ameliorate cultural conflicts in communities across both power and difference

I am constantly impressed by the down-to-earth practicality of the FIC workshops combined with the philosophical questions that are so vital for us to explore. I’m grateful for the excellent planning and delivery of the workshops by skilled and inclusive presenters, who create a space that is both welcoming and invites participants to challenge existing ideas and world views.
