Over the past few months, I've received emails from a number of Long Islanders looking for a diversity training program similar to the one I offer--which by the way, is fun, informative and contains a tangible skills-building component.

And since it doesn't take much to set me in motion, the emails prompted me to reach out to several universities in Long Island. I did not find an ongoing program for which individuals, independent of their companies, could register. But even better, a local university offered to partner with me to offer my program.

And so, I am happy to extend an invitation to you to participate in my workshop "Understanding Cultural Diversity." You can more information about workshop on

my website.

As a brief summary, this program covers the following topics:

*What is culture?

*Navigating our own culture--identifying the messages we received growing up, about gender, ethnicity, class, where we live, etc.

*Effective communication skills

*Understanding others and finding common ground

*The role of humor in resolving conflict and tension

As a participant, you will learn:

*More about yourself and your particular worldview

*The truth about "difference"

*How we are all more alike, than different

*How to communicate better with others who may see things differently

*What gets in the way of cross-racial, cross-gender and cross-cultural difference in general

Inquire within your company about reimbursement and make this workshop part of your development plan.

You can also e-mail me with any questions, or for further information.

My best,
Susan
