World Affairs Council Business Programs

May 11, 2021

Dear Members and Friends:

Today we’d like to highlight two programs produced for the business community. The first is the conversation on “Business Transformation in the Post Covid World,” with PMI CEO Jacek Olczak. It is offered through our association with the World Affairs Councils of America network.

The second is a training opportunity for professionals who work with international partners and clients. Our sister Council, the Cleveland Council on World Affairs, is sharing this program with the TNWAC network. Details and registration information is below.

The business community in Tennessee figures well in TNWAC programs and opportunities. We look forward to having your business connect to the World Affairs Council as a member, sponsor and partner.

Sincerely,

 

 

 

Patrick W. Ryan
Founding President, TNWAC

Thank you for your support of global affairs awareness and education!

Global Competency Training

May 19 and 26, 2021 at 12:00PM

Do you work on a global team? Do you interact with international clients or partners? Are you interested in working more effectively with people from other cultures?

WHAT

Join TNWAC’s friends at the Cleveland Council on World Affairs for a two-part workshop series to develop skills for working more effectively internationally.

Learning outcomes from the series include:

  • Learn how to communicate more effectively across cultures
  • Understand one’s own cultural perspective
  • Identify and gain awareness of underlying dimensions of culture
  • Recognize the importance of approaching cultural interactions with an open mind

The workshop series is designed to build participants’ global competency. The workshops are intentionally interactive and self-reflective. We believe that self-awareness and a willingness to accept diversity and unfamiliarity are the foundation of truly successful cross-cultural interactions over the long-term. Our training is rooted in this philosophical approach, and it combines interactive and experiential content to invite participants to approach cultural interactions with a more open mind, while offering well-researched information about cultural nuances.

WHEN

The workshop series will take place over Zoom.

Training dates:

  • May 19 from 12:00-1:30pm: Understanding Cultural Norms
  • May 26 from 12:00-1:30pm: Developing Cross-Cultural Strategies

Admission: $250 per person. Registration is required.

Registration: This event will be held as a Zoom meeting. Please register at THIS LINK.

Thanks to the Cleveland Council on World Affairs for welcoming TNWAC friends.
