On Thursday 18th October, ICIE officially celebrated its first anniversary with an informal evening at the Kl’Hub on the Paris campus. This was the occasion to take stock of the activities of the past year and also to thank SIETAR France (Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research) for the generous donation to the IESEG library of its collection of intercultural books. The books are in the process of being added to IESEG’s existing collection and are now available to SIETAR members to consult in the Kl’Hub.
As well as taking stock of the past events, this was also the moment to look to the future and ICIE took advantage of the visit of a delegation from IACCM (International Association of Cross-Cultural Competence and Management), led by Secretary General Barbara Covarrubias, to announce the official launch of next year’s joint ICIE-IACCM congress on the theme of:
Intercultural competencies for a disruptive VUCA world: Exploring creativity, innovation, resilience & resistance in intercultural research, training & management
This congress is to be held on the Paris campus from October 31st until November 2nd, 2019. More information is available at: https://iaccm-congress.ieseg.fr/
The cocktail, provided by the association Les Cuistots Migrateurs, was appreciated by all the participants and an enjoyable and interesting evening of intercultural exchanges was had by all.
