"Minding the 'Other': Assessing the Effect of Cultural Fluency Programs on Social Cognition"
The rapid rise of cross-cultural interactions in the global work forces, and the potentially devastating consequences of cultural
misunderstandings underscore the urgent need for programs that facilitate 'cultural fluency'. Measuring the effect of these efforts on
how we think about and interact with the 'other' is a particular challenge. In this talk, I will outline the approaches we have been
developing (including novel implicit measures and functional neuroimaging) to help cultural exchange programs evaluate their impact.
Ronald W. “Ron” Jackson - Commissioner, Technical College System of Georgia - Confirmed as Sunday Banquet Dinner Speaker
