WEBINAR: The Potential Power of Poetry in Intercultural Settings

December 7, 2022 - 11:30 am-1:00 pm (US Eastern)


Kathy Ellis, Intercultural Communication & ESL Trainer

The world of poetry offers generosity of spirit, yet poetry is often succinct and complex, providing IC/DEI practitioners a wider lens for deeper learning and awareness.  In this seminar, Kathy shares poems, applications, and resources that expand the depth and learning in our intercultural worlds. According to Kathy, there is no other genre like creating and reading poetry that voices deep thoughts and feelings in a small amount of space, lending thoughts to rich multilogues.
