How different are we? How similar? How can a global organization build a robust culture with people coming from all over the globe? How can an international institution ensure an inclusive atmosphere for students from all cultural backgrounds without betraying its own roots? How can we all work effectively with cross-cultural complexity and create a space for innovation to thrive? In Ekaterina's speeches and workshops, she explores how divergent thinking coming from various cultural views can lead a company to a new level of success and how educators can apply new approaches to learning. After all, when you think about the challenge of creating shared meaning, what could be more challenging than trying to work with the cognitive map of an alien from another planet?
