An Interculturalist’s Perspective on Ways to Success in American Culture

The United States is emerging from the COVID-19 Pandemic a deeply fractious society. We seem to be recovering economically, but very unevenly. Politically we are often contentious and disappointed. Culturally and socially, we are often anxious and discontented, especially for those not in the majority racially, ethically, gender identity, ability, and socio-economically class in terms of order and fairness.

No one discipline or perspective can do justice to the complexity we are experiencing in the US at this time. As an interculturalist, a scholar and consultant most focused on the ebbs and flows of communication and engagement across difference, I can offer a perspective on how culture and intercultural competence is impacting this unique time.
