Cultural Awareness Workshop

Let’s go on a journey together and discover more about other cultures and behaviours!

In this course, you will learn how we think differently about people that are not the same as us and why. We will also discuss and exchange our traditional ways of doing what we do and why. The objective of this course is to find out more about other cultures and how to avoid intercultural misunderstandings at home and at our workplace.

We will talk about many topics, such as:

  • Culture, diversity, inclusion
  • Immigration, permanent resident, refugee
  • Prejudice and racism
  • Educational background
  • Teamwork, authority, language
