It?s beyond question: intercultural competence IS the key to the globalised world.

Study after study has shown that diverse teams are more creative, more productive and have better results. They have also shown that people expect more conflict and a more difficult process in culturally diverse teams.

Intercultural specialists from academia, business and the training field have been working for decades to advance the knowledge and develop the skills of all those working internationally to enable them to navigate these complexities successfully. Through November 25-27 many of them will be in Wrocław, Poland for the Congress of the Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research (SIETAR) Polska.

While the Congress can only accommodate 120 participants, everyone is invited to the Opening Session on November 25th at 9:00 at Kino Nowe Horyzonty, which will be free and open to the public.

We?ll take you on a trip around the world, through a multicultural, multi-disciplinary experience. In a one of a kind event, we?ll explore the meaning of intercultural competence through different lenses ? including an experimental dance performance, specially designed for the event by Cloud Theater, a comedy routine by Famous Jim Williams, peppered with unique musical performances, and keynote speakers Agnieszka Orłowska, site lead of Google in Wroclaw, and Livingstone Thompson from Dublin, Ireland.

The entrance to the Opening Session is free, but places are limited. To secure your seat, register here.
