Part of being a leader is understanding how to communicate with folks from different backgrounds. In this seminar you will explore different ways to communicate when in conflict and how communication is different depending on your cultural identity, lived experiences, and what you were taught directly. Students will explore how to communicate across cultures.
Each semester CBS Student Services hosts a Leadership Seminar where students have an opportunity to explore and develop critical leadership necessary to serve as an effective lead both personally and professionally. In these short interactive seminars, students will be able to apply specific skills and understand their value in the context of student leadership, scientific discovery, advocacy, and community change. Past seminars have focused on practicing self-advocacy and empowering others, how to engage in difficult conversations, and the importance of anti-racism in leadership.
