Creating communities where culture enriches the learning for all
WHAT IS INTERCULTURAL COMPETENCE?
Our cultures and identities inform how we see and engage with the world around us. Learn more about how understanding cultural lenses help us to build connections with others.
Kennedy Schultz, Ph.D.
Founder and Principal
As an intercultural educator, researcher, and curriculum designer, I have spent more than 20 years helping students from kindergarten to college build their capacity to embrace difference and expand their cultural perspectives. Today's complex and diverse world demands nothing less.
My early studies in France, Morocco, and Québec ignited a love of language and culture that I wanted to share with others. It also taught me that many of the things I had learned about other cultures through the media were surface stereotypes only. As an intercultural education professional, I've worked to broaden student and teacher perspectives and nurture a mindset of curiosity and inquiry in my work. As a professional learning facilitator, these same skills are essential in developing the capacity to navigate cultural difference, whether we create equitable and inclusive learning environments or foster collaborative teamwork in businesses.
Developing intercultural competence allows us to nurture our community. If you want to help your team build these foundational skills through engaging personalized workshops and coaching, contact me today.
