Atlanta Summit on Citizen Diplomacy
Develop the skills you need to succeed in today’s global environment while learning to build rich and rewarding intercultural relationships. This one-day annual event has evolved to a series of a breakfasts and luncheons designed to enhance skills for personal and cultural diplomacy while networking with the international community.
Each event promotes an understanding of diverse values and cultures, educates participants about global perspectives, and furthers mutual understanding. GCIV aims to raise awareness about cross-cultural understanding and the responsibilities of citizen diplomats through this interactive series.
The 2011 Atlanta Summit on Citizen Diplomacy series has been initiated through a seed grant from the National Council for International Visitors (NCIV) as part of its 50th Anniversary celebration.
The next Atlanta Summit on Citizen Diplomacy event is Thursday, June 30, 2011. The Citizen Diplomacy Lunch includes a presentation by cross-cultural expert Vicki Flier Hudson and titled “The Spirit of U.S. Culture: Self-Awareness as a Powerful Tool for Intercultural Success.” Those raised in the U.S. will gain a fascinating perspective on their own culture, and those raised outside the U.S. will learn more about their friends, clients, and counterparts. There is no cost to attend, but you must be a GCIV member and RSVP in advance. Click here for details.
