Cross-cultural Communication Skills Online and In Real Life

Our workplaces and social lives have become culturally diverse, and we could all use new tools to communicate and work effectively.

When we work or interact with people beyond borders, either digitally or in-person, we immerse ourselves into cross-cultural communication and relationships. We need to develop knowledge about other cultures and inculcate the mindset needed to appreciate diversity and inclusiveness.
