Developing cross-cultural understanding assists in becoming more culturally aware. This can be a continual process and it can help to have curiosity, an open mind, a willingness to ask questions, a desire to learn about the differences that exist between cultures, and an openness to becoming conscious of one’s own culturally shaped values, beliefs, perceptions, and biases. ***********  "#MySDGDream: Sustainable Development Goals and Me" with Zephanii Smith Eisenstat *********** Monday, February 12,  2:30 pm - 4 pm HST *********** via Zoom.
