Gannon staff and faculty are invited to attend an interactive webinar that explores the topic of globalization as it relates to communication and interactions with persons of diverse cultural identities. Beverages and light snacks will be provided, and participants are welcome to bring lunch as this will be held over the noon hour.

Lurie will engage participants in a 50-minute session followed by a 30-minute Q & A for with us as virtual participants. Using examples of culture clashes from the daily news, in the context of business, religion, health care, and technology, Lurie will explore how the messages we see and hear every day contain meanings that lie deeper than meets the eye or the ear.
