What is inter-cultural capability?
Being inter-cultural capable means behaving in a way that respects someone else’s mana and cultural background. It means being able to work and communicate effectively across different cultures and contexts, and having the ability to acknowledge and mitigate unconscious or conscious biases.
Developing intercultural capability is a lifelong process that involves ongoing awareness and self-assessment of your own cultural assumptions, values, and beliefs. It also involves being willing to learn and being open to adapting what you think and how you interact with others.
