BGC: Developing Your Intercultural Insight

BGC: Developing Your Intercultural Insight  promotional image

In this two-part session, participants will learn about developing their intercultural insights by exploring the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI). The IDI generates an individual profile of “worldview orientation to difference,” and is based on the research of Dr. Milton Bennett and Dr. Mitchell Hammer. Participants will be required to complete the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) before the session. Participants will sign-up and attend a follow-up 1 hour virtual meeting with a trained IDI facilitator to receive feedback on their individual profile and discuss their individual development plan for intercultural growth.

Participants who attend this session will be able to:

  • describe the intercultural growth continuum and the stages of intercultural development
  • find out where the IDI indicates they are on the intercultural growth continuum
  • develop a personal plan for their intercultural growth to be able to work more effectively with international students and scholars 
  • understand cultural context of your work environment
