Cultural Etiquette: Focus on Middle East Workshop on Nov. 15

This workshop, scheduled for Friday, Nov. 15 from 10 am to 12 pm, will provide an overview on the Middle East in general while examining the huge diversity that it represents. The class will provide individuals who work, or may work closely in the future, with someone from the Middle East an idea about the cultures of the Middle East, expectations that Middle Easterners might have when dealing with Americans, and cross-cultural conflicts that might take place. We will present information from a focus group of UAB students with an Arab background, giving examples of their experiences here. The class is being offered by UAB Organizational Learning & Development and UAB English Language Institute and is open to all UAB employees. The workshop will be held at Lister Hill Library in the Fletcher Room on 2nd Floor. Register through the UAB Faculty and Staff Learning System at http://www.uab.edu/learningsystem/.
