Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected
For the first salon of the Without Borders Series with host Nolan Yuma Janssens , we will discuss cultural competence in both a business and personal setting. We will use the research of social psychologists and business professionals such as Erin Meyer, Kurt Lewin, Richard E. Nisbett, and Stephanie Steven J. Heine to aid in our the conversation.
After hosting the Without Borders Mini-series in February, Nolan realized that these discussions couldn’t be contained in a single salon series — they needed to be ongoing.
Throughout the series, Nolan will be constantly updating the material to build upon the previous salons and support the ideas and projects of the attendees. During the discussion, we will always summarize key ideas from previous salons, and you can access recordings through Interintellect or join the WithoutBorders workshop, which includes a growing list of resources for storytellers, people working in an international environment, and the ‘inescapably foreign.’

The themes of the monthly discussion revolve around:
- Abating polarization
- Advancing the bureaucratic system and immigration process
- Discovering universal truths about morality
- Improving cultural competence
- Increasing productivity for international organizations
- Limiting xenophobia
- Storytelling techniques for “The Inescapably Foreign.”
Note: Some books, organizations, theories, and questions that arose during the Without Borders Mini-series will come up, but please don’t feel you can’t contribute to the conversation if you missed a previous salon.
