Developing effective intercultural competency: everything you need to know

Despite the growing literature on intercultural competency, many still find it challenging to know where to start in approaching the development of intercultural skills. In this session, you will hear about two approaches aimed at effectively developing intercultural competencies: one, aimed at a general audience, was co-created with UNESCO, and the other, an educational pathway has been implemented within a four-year business Bachelor’s programme.
