Intercultural competency offers an understanding of attitudes, and behaviours which help with effective interaction and communication with different groups of people who are perceived to be from a different cultural background. We will learn about the different concepts and how we can apply it within our University community. There will be an opportunity for discussion and to learn more about the role of the Intercultural & Anti-Discrimination Adviser and the newly expanded reporting platform Report + Support.
Lillian Lee is the University's Intercultural & Anti-Discrimination Adviser.
