Joe Lurie, Executive Director Emeritus of the International House at U.C. Berkeley, presents a fascinating and enlightening talk that spans his more than thirty years of experience in leadership, both at the International House and abroad. Bringing with him a feast of cross-cultural stories and misadventures, he explores the deeper cultural messages that typically escape people due to their prejudices, be they conscious or unconscious. Lurie reveals how cultural filters distort perceptions of others in the worlds of immigration, diplomacy, and business.
