Our Changing World! Join us in San Diego for the SIETAR USA Annual Conference
The 17th Annual Conference of SIETAR USA is designed to be a refreshing blend of familiar and new, traditional and innovative. The theme, Building Bridges with Intercultural Competence: Changing World, Changing People, Changing Times, was selected to provide a platform for exploring a wide range of issues relevant to the world today and our role as interculturalists. The theme challenges us to be realistic about the difficulties and idealistic about the opportunities of social, community, and individual change.
Both domestically and globally, is it possible to effect change? Can we do so responsibly? Where should we start? Our answers come from our students, our clients, our research, our personal lives, and our workplace. Our conference will explore pragmatic and purposeful approaches to transformation, in the belief that with humility, we can make a difference.
In addition to sessions of general interest, three tracks are planned for the conference:
- Healing the Divides: Race, Ethnic and National Origin, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Immigrants and Refugees Face Challenges in our Changing Times
- Cultural Identity: Fresh Perspectives on Multicultural and Global Identity
- Assessing Intercultural Competence: Measuring Transformative Culture Learning.
We hope you will join us in the pleasure of intellectual dialogue and of once again being together in our intercultural community.
