Cultural Awareness for Event Profs: Tips on Avoiding Intercultural Blunders
Who doesn’t love a great themed party? But did you know that serving hand-rolled sushi at a Chinese New Year theme party is considered an unconscious intercultural blunder? On Wednesday, Oct. 9th, Cindy Y. Lo, DMCP, CEO & Chief Event Strategist of Red Velvet Events, discussed what it means in our hospitality industry to be culturally aware when planning events for a diverse audience.
- Identifying what cultural awareness means
- Reviewing examples of positive cultural appropriation
- Determining how cultural awareness would fit in your day-to-day life both personally & professionally
