Cross-cultural communication is a field of study that looks at how people from differing cultural backgrounds communicate, in similar and different ways among themselves, and how they endeavor to communicate across cultures. As the world promotes inclusion, it is unavoidable that different cultures will meet. The challenge we face is that culture styles can be as much of a barrier to effective communication, as the difference in language is.
The importance of cultural education is of great significance for effective communication both inside the workplace and in our day-to-day lives. The medium that is used to deliver this knowledge will be different depending on different people’s preferences.
That is why a group of creative, young global citizens have embarked on a research journey in order to identify both similarities and differences in cultural traditions and perceptions. At the same time, the research project aims to identify the preferred platform that users would wish to use to gain cultural awareness.
Your response to the survey is crucial as it will assist the team to develop projects that help manage cultural diversity in a democratic manner globally. Also, it will bridge the divide between those who perceive diversity as a threat and those who view it as an enrichment.
Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary and all your responses are anonymous. None of the responses will be connected to identifying information. They will only be used for statistical purposes.
The survey will take 1-2 minutes to complete.
