Bite-Sized Learning: Cultural Unawareness
The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits is hosting “Bite-Sized Learning: Cultural Unawareness:”
“‘Cultural awareness’ seems to be a buzzword these days. The problem is not ‘awareness’ but ‘unawareness.’ In this talk, first, we define ‘culture’ and then look at an example of cultural difference, specifically the US vs. Japan, then more generally compare ‘wholistic’ and ‘individualistic’ culture. Lastly, we will see how language influences our thought processes.
The Bite-Sized Learning events are designed by MCN’s Greater Minnesota team to keep us connected across the state. While the topics are chosen to meet the needs of Greater Minnesota, all are welcome here! Each event will have a short presentation along with plenty of time for networking and discussion on the designated topic. Bring your questions and expertise on the topic! With our cameras and microphones on, we can stay connected, learn, and support one another.”
