Cross-Cultural Communication for Supervisors
Penn is a multicultural institution, with students, faculty, and staff from all over the world. This makes for a very diverse, vibrant community and at times, a rather confusing one. This workshop will provide supervisors with general advice on how to manage cultural gaps in their workplace for their staff and themselves.
This session will be conducted by Dr. Rodolfo Altamirano, Director of the International Student and Scholar Services, and Dr. Patricia Tsao, Senior Researcher Investigator at the Perelman SOM.
