Workshop Ethos Echo - Cultural Diversity Training: Each society has an accompanying "culture," a set of values, rules, and attitudes, which guide behaviour and give meaning to social life. This 4-hour course will help participants understand and appreciate that we all interpret life through our cultural lens. If we want to connect, influence, and understand others, we must give attention to cultural diversity. Central Click to visit website
