Organizations are a critical area for intercultural work, but good intentions often collide with organizational realities. While many of us are fluent in certain aspects of intercultural relations, we may be less proficient in navigating organizational, functional, and industrial cultures. This is a regrettable loss for our field and society, for we cannot truly “build bridges in a changing world” if we do not know how to effectively translate our expertise into language organizations understand and find compelling. This presentation addresses this shortcoming by helping participants develop a foundation in organizational culture from a combined intercultural and change management perspective. They will learn about the most common organizational trip wires and best practices for addressing them, and will have time to apply their learning to their current challenges. All participants are welcome, but it is particularly suited to students and intercultural professionals with beginning and intermediate experience levels.
