Skyline College CTTL is proud to host “Cultural Competency: A Cross Race/Gender Conversation” facilitated by award-winning filmmaker Lee Mun Wah. Diverse institutions offer tremendous potential for learning and enrichment, yet there are also moments of conflict and tension over differences in perspective. Using a combination of films, personal stories, experiential exercises, discussion and lectures, the program will offer:
- a deeper understanding of how gender and race can enhance and stimulate a stronger sense of community and cooperation
- a deeper understanding of divergent communication styles, perspectives, and expectations
- ways to mediate gender and race issues cross-culturally
- strategies for beginning conversations about gender and race
Lee Mun Wah believes when we value others for their uniqueness and differences, then we enhance the possibilities for our children and ourselves. Lee Mun Wah is the Executive Director of Stirfry Seminars & Consulting, an agency that provides educational tools and workshops on issues pertaining to cross-cultural communication and awareness, mindful facilitation, and conflict mediation techniques. Lee Mun Wah’s award-winning films include The Color of Fear, Stolen Ground, and Walking Each Other Home. Other films include Last Chance for Eden and, most recently, If These Halls Could Talk.
