In an era of pandemic uncertainty what will the future of work look like? What are the youth of today facing for the next few years? This session will explore the future of work and the need for cultural diplomacy. More than ever, COVID-19 has brought together nations to fight against this disease. Understanding cultural differences intra-cultural communications, beyond language, is critical for working in an increasingly culturally diverse world. Most jobs of the future will require employees to have some knowledge of different nations and cultures. Yet we all know that first impressions can go terribly wrong. This session will have some fun looking at cultural intelligence and diplomacy and how these skills will be desired by employers in the future.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Examining cultural diversity in the workforce
  • Knowledge of cultural diplomacy
  • Some fun examples and takeaways from different cultural interactions
