FREE! Lunch n’Learn: Global Citizenship in a Changing Community | 11:00 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Season’s Family Restaurant | 1943 Saskatchewan Ave. W 

Pre-registration is required

Our Centre for Continuing Studies is hosting a free lunch and learn on the topic of 'Global Citizenship in a Changing Community'. 

Cultural diversity has never been richer in our schools, workplaces, and neighbourhoods. Now is the ideal time to hone your intercultural skills and broaden your perspective as a global citizen.

Through participation in this Lunch & Learn, participants will broaden their understanding of cultures from around the world and will have a chance to reflect on their own culture to reveal the similarities we share. Expect to leave with a fresh perspective and strategies to further develop your intercultural skills.

Lunch will be provided to participants. Registration is required as seating is limited.

Email hackb@assiniboine.net to register. 

Presenter: Meghan Miller, BA MAIIC(c) – International Coordinator, Assiniboine International
