Welcome to SIETAR BC
Thank you to everyone who came out to attend our April event: International and Intercultural Opportunities. What’s Out There? It was a great and stimulating evening full with rich conversation. We had a great turn-out with fifty two people attending not just from Vancouver but from various parts of the province including Kamloops and Victoria. During the event nine people signed up to join SIETAR B.C. as members and we would like to say Welcome! We thank all the participants who have made the event a great success with their participation. For those who couldn’t make it we are creating a video to give you a glimpse of it and we’ll post it to our Facebook page shortly.
Following the event, we wanted to keep the conversations going and are asking the question “How did you get started in Intercultural field?” on our LinkedIn group page. Join our group and take part in the conversation!
SIETAR B.C.’s Facebook page also provides daily nuggets to keep you engaged with the Intercultural field. Like our Facebook page to stay current with upcoming events, webinars or interesting intercultural articles.
Another exciting news is around our upcoming May event. We are collaborating with the UBC Continuing Studies Centre for Intercultural Communication at their Spring Symposium, “Current Practices and Trends in the Field of Diversity, Inclusion and Intercultural Communication” on May 17 at the UBC Robson Square Campus in Vancouver.
This one-day event will feature present-day trends and challenges diversity practitioners encounter as they raise awareness and build capacity in classrooms, campuses, corporate and non-profit organizations. What approaches are trainers and practitioners using to support ongoing intercultural engagement among communities, recognizing barriers and strategizing ways to empower participants and organizations to embrace differences to create a more just and equitable society? Everyone is invited to attend and participate. Lunch and refreshments are provided.
