The IES will help you or your students to:

  • Gain an understanding of why culture is important, how it impacts daily interactions, and why it’s important to work with those who are different from us
  • Evaluate one’s capabilities for engaging effectively with global counterparts and create an action plan for improvement
  • Raise awareness of best practices and strategies for improving interactions with global counterparts
  • Gain clear insight into the impact programs are having on cultural competencies
