What is the cultural significance of the everyday situations and objects that we simply take for granted? How might this significance be different for those whose backgrounds vary from our own?  How do these differences impact our interactions?

This course will help you see the familiar in new ways and creatively challenge your assumptions so that you can better empathize with the different perspectives that surround you in your everyday environment.

In addition to mentoring and coaching expertise, Dr. Nagesh Rao has led sustainable campus-wide intercultural competence development and diversity and inclusion programs/systems in higher education around the world.
