What is intercultural awareness and why do we need it to create an inclusive community?
Intercultural awareness is both a skill-set and a mindset that allows us to recognize different cultural behaviors and communication styles for the cultural manifestations that they are. This awareness encompasses both a deeper understanding of the self and an openness to understanding other perspectives. The cultivation of these qualities allows us to be supportive and inclusive of other cultures.
