Trusting relationships are at the foundation of inclusivity. In professional settings, the actions and experiences that establish trust can differ across individuals and cultures.
In this workshop, we will:
- discuss why taking time for trust building is vital in multicultural interactions and teams.
- define different orientations to trust-building and locate our own orientation.
- learn about the role of empathy and cultural humility in trust building.
- explore strategies for shifting our approach trust-building in work with colleagues and students.
This will be an interactive workshop – be prepared for reflection and application activities. If you have questions or specific scenarios you would like to discuss, please contact Victoria Surtees: Victoria.firstname.lastname@example.org
