Virtual iLab 102: Approaches to Cross-Cultural Conflict (Part 1)

  1. Monday, September 20th, 202110:30am - 12:00pm

Approaches to Cross-Cultural Conflict is the second workshop in the iLab Series. If you have ever had an unpleasant conflict that you wish could have been handled more effectively, or hesitated to have a conversation about diversity because you feared it would not have a positive outcome, this class is for you! In this session you will, 

  • Explore differences in conflict styles through theory and practice

  • Use the Intercultural Conflict Style (ICS) Assessment to identify preferred conflict styles

  • Engage in exercises that teach a range of conflict styles based on cultural norms for various identity-groups

  • Practice strategies for having more effective dialogue across style differences

 Note: This semester, iLab will be offered virtually. The content of iLab 102 will be covered over two classes. If your schedule allows, please register for both classes.
