As one of Europe’s leading intercultural capitals, Berlin is home to many companies with an international workforce. The Fürstenberg Institute has made this development one of our priorities to support the intercultural workforce.
Intercultural@Work will be their first event to bring the international business community – in Berlin and anywhere – together to offer a discussion about challenges, perspectives, and inspiring ideas on how to move the intercultural workplace forward in the 21st century. Digitalization, intercultural communication, and current challenges through Corona are some of the topics of the event.
Leading keynote speakers from the Expat community, and executives and employees from the international corporate scene to an inspiring event to share the latest developments, ideas, and future perspectives.
We look forward to welcoming you to Intercultural@Work!
