Engaging & Building Relationships Among Cultural Differences Within the Workplace

Join Greenville Women at Work for lunch and a panel discussion featuring multicultural women professionals as they share their perspectives and suggest ways for us to break out of our silos, look at behavior from the cultural perspectives of others, seek commonalities and communicate openly. 

As U.S. demographics change, cultural diversity is an increasingly important opportunity for businesses. Our cultural background shapes our values, world view, beliefs and behaviors. As our workplaces become more diverse, language barriers and cultural differences can cause breakdowns in interpersonal communication.

If we can identify our cultural biases, we can correct them. Please join us as we learn to more fully embrace, value and celebrate the differences of all with whom we work.

Our panelists include:

Mavis Nakuma, BSN
Registered Nurse in the Telemetry Unit of AnMed Health in Anderson

Elvia Pacheco-Flores
Human Resources Professional at Fluor and the Founder of the Non-Profit “LatinosUnited”

Sima Patel
Attorney at Nexsen Pruet Law Firm, specializing in Corporate Compliance, Litigation, Business Disputes, and Employment & Labor Law
