Join us during International Education Week to discuss cultural agility with two experts: Alain Verstandig, founder and president of the NetExpat Group, and Laurette Bennhold-Samaan, vice president global advisory & intercultural services at at NetExpat.

This event is part of the Professional French Speaker Series, moderated by Sophie Landrieux Kartochian.

In an interconnected world where boundaries are blurred, and diversity is the norm, cultural agility has emerged as a pivotal skill set. "Shape Your Future, Shape the World" through increasing your cultural agility encapsulates the essence of this transformative ability, highlighting its paramount importance in navigating the complexities of our globalized society. Organizations are now looking at this differently.    

Cultural agility is the ability to adapt, communicate, and collaborate effectively across cultural boundaries. In an era where businesses operate on a global scale and communities are more interconnected than ever, possessing cultural agility is no longer a luxury but a necessity.  In the context of shaping the future, cultural agility is an indispensable tool for harnessing the power of globalization. What are organizations doing in this space? How are they training their staff to develop or further their global mindset? What are they offering and who is the audience?    

As technology continues to shrink the world, businesses, governments, and individuals must navigate an increasingly interconnected landscape. Those who can seamlessly traverse cultural nuances will be at the forefront of progress, driving innovation and creating a future that is both inclusive and sustainable. In essence, the importance of cultural agility cannot be overstated. It is the linchpin that holds together the tapestry of our globalized world. To shape your future is to cultivate this invaluable skill, recognizing that the ability to adapt and thrive in diverse environments is not just a personal asset but a catalyst for positive change on a global scale. We will explore what are some of the intercultural market trends and best practices and share with you the latest results of the largest intercultural landscape survey.
