Join award-winning author and strategist Eng as she describes the concept of “cultural fluency,” the ability to understand, and be understood, across perceived boundaries and among many communities. She will demonstrate how the ability to be “fluent” will be critically important and valuable to leaders in a world where borders of all kinds are disappearing. She will show you how workplace and marketing practices, policy, program goals, and definitions of leadership change when we truly embrace “fluency” fundamentals.
Through inspiration, humor, and anecdotes of her experience working with some of the nation’s most innovative companies, governments, and institutions, Eng will tell the success stories that show how each of us can be a change maker. This session will also help your institution explore its role in a wider international context — she’ll show you how in a global economy, “cultural fluency” can transform your team into a 21st century innovator.
