Intercultural Competence Workshops

"If you are looking to expand your organization's knowledge and competence of intercultural communication, One To World has the ideal program."

University of Massachusetts-Amherst

"Everyone needs to be in workshops such as this because we all need... reminders of our own limitations, biases, approaches and how we can actively deconstruct negative explicit and implicit responses to achieve more effective communication, a sense of trust, and a space in which a person feels heard."

New York University College of Arts & Sciences
