Recap: “Stepping Out of the Box: Working Together to Communicate Effectively Across Cultures” October Virtual Professional Development Event

Thank you for attending our September professional development event, “Stepping Out of the Box: Working Together to Communicate Effectively Across Cultures,” featuring Diana Sanchez-Vega, owner of Sanchez-Vega Communications. We hope you enjoyed learning some new strategies to work with diverse audiences while gaining new insights on how others receive and interpret targeted messaging. This hour-long presentation addressed the benefits of stepping out of the box when communicating with limited English proficient speakers to engage in mutually productive dialogue, including:
  • How to effectively communicate across cultures in both professional and personal settings
  • How to confidently manage cultural barriers to achieve common goals
  • How to think more broadly in a multicultural scenario to ensure everyone feels included and respected
