  • “Career-Builders” exercises and checklists connect communication skills to careers success by providing insights into the types of skills employers seek such as the ability to speak so that others listen, listen when others speak, adapt to differences in cultural perspectives, handle conflicts and solve problems, and make sound decisions.  
  • “Exploring Diversity” activities encourage students to think critically about how different cultures and genders communicate and puts these differences into context so students develop a more global perspective.
