Bridging Intercultural Awareness

A project of intercultural workshops with two main objectives: empower and strengthen intercultural awareness in the community and help participants to apply new intercultural communication skills in their daily life and at work.

The project is open to anyone interested in learning more about multicultural awareness.

The workshops will focus on multicultural skills and several specific topics will be discussed. The available topics will be divided into six workshops that will meet the needs of the participants.

To receive a certificate, the participants must attend at least 4 workshops, so the first one is mandatory.
