English: Cultural Awareness- The global engineer, Communicating across countries and cultures new [Places] 16:00 - 18:00 Department of Engineering, Language Unit Meeting Room

Have you ever struggled with colleagues' styles of communication, wondered why some people seem to use more formal language, or be more direct than others? Culture plays a big part in how we communicate, and adjusting to the cultural communication norms means more than learning a foreign language.

In Cambridge's diverse and multicultural environment, we constantly communicate with people whose cultural communication norms differ from ours, whether you are a native English speaker from the United Kingdom, a native English speaker from elsewhere in the world, or have learnt English as a foreign language.

In order to avoid misunderstanding, or worse still, conflict, brought on by variations in communication styles we need to learn to make allowances for the cultural differences in how people communicate. To better understand cross-cultural complexity and increase your awareness of cultural identities, the Department's Language Unit have kindly agreed to run a training session on intercultural communication to increase your cultural awareness and give you a better understanding of how culture may affect your everyday communication.

Although crucial during your time in Cambridge, intercultural competence count as a critical soft-skill in your carrier. The engineers of tomorrow need cross-cultural communication skills to work effectively across countries and cultures, in international teams and in leadership /managerial roles, in addition to technical and scientific competence. This workshop will help Engineers to be effective communicators across cultures.
