Intersections -Jana Hollá & guests
Leveraging connections between key Differences narratives for greater impact: intercultural communication, DEI and global learning
In this ‘advanced beginner’ course, we explore intersections between Intercultural communication, Diversity, equity & inclusion and Global learning. Using expert inputs, discussions, and application to real-life case studies, critical incidents, and challenges, this course provides a broad overview of the underlying concepts, models, and contributions of each narrative. We explore how and where there may be overlaps as well as where — and why —there are apparent gaps. The aim is to familiarise you with narratives that you may not yet have incorporated into your practice and/or scholarship.
With the premise that the intersecting areas between the Intercultural communications, Diversity & inclusion, Global competence, and Global learning can enrich our work and strengthen how we help individuals, groups, and organizations develop across differences. Join this course to familiarise yourself with the Differences narratives that you may not yet have incorporated into your practice and/or scholarship.
We will explore how and where there may be overlaps as well as where—and why—there are apparent gaps. We will then apply these insights and conduct together, a multi-faceted analysis of real-life questions, challenges, and case studies to inform approaches and tools for supporting ourselves and others in developing across differences, engaging in meaningful dialogue, and improving connections.

Janna Hollá, PhD
Having lived and worked internationally for 20+ years in combination with her academic training in Cultural Anthropology, Dr. Jana Hollá assists organizations, teams and individuals to make the most of the differences they encounter.
Based in Cairo, Egypt and southern France, Jana lectures and provides consultancy, training, and facilitation services primarily in the areas of Cross-cultural Competence Building, Diversity Management, and International Mobility. Her interventions explore the nature of difference, knowledge and learning as a means of developing and transforming individuals, teams and their organizations who seek to build effective and meaningful working relations across cultures and differences.
Additional faculty with expertise in one or more of the three areas will make guest appearances (live and online) with Dr. Hollá during the three-days.
“Loved the humor, facilitation pace and easygoing atmosphere. [Made] theory very accessible and understandable. Dr. Hollá is a true expert and great trainer.”
“Great faculty team, creating a great atmosphere, great mix of activity and theory.”
“I learned so much about DEI, an area that was quite new to me. With that I now understand more about the intersections between ICC and DEI.”
“Incredible facilitation with a great balance of structure where needed but an openness to go where we wanted.”
