About the Event

On Friday, May 26, GLOBIS University will be holding a seminar to discuss how professionals can successfully overcome cultural differences and communicate effectively in cross-cultural business settings.


The globalized economy has made cross-cultural skills a necessity for any thriving businessperson. However, in Japan especially, the push to "go global" has sometimes been rebuffed by seemingly insurmountable cultural differences. How can Japanese and foreign professionals find the right balance between smooth interaction and leveraging diversity?


This interactive seminar will feature a dialogue between Megumi Taoka and Suzanne Price, two leading experts in the field of diversity and inclusion in Japan, followed by Q&A and networking. Discussions will include insights and practical advice for those seeking better understanding, as well as those wanting to be better understood, in global business settings.
