Multicultural teamwork: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
The UvA Cultural Exchange Ambassadors Programme is a team-based, extracurricular experience promoting equity in mobility, celebrating cultural diversity and inspiring students to engage with their community. You will be given the opportunity to use you student mobility experience (for example participating in an exchange, summer, conference, scholarships and/or virtual study abroad programme) and collaborate in various teams to complete a list of challenging but fun projects. You will meet your fellow ambassadors during weekly sessions on Tuesday afternoon (with a break in-between the programme), spending a total of around 30 hours of work on a variety of team projects.
Developing professional skills
As an ambassador, you will be trained to navigate and adapt to cultural differences, apply different strategies to capitalise on the creativity and innovation that comes with multicultural teamwork and develop your intercultural competence; a useful skill for everyone who foresees a future career where you will be working with a diverse group of people. The programme will focus on enhancing your self-efficacy in interacting with students from different cultures with an emphasis on communication, equity-mindedness and inclusion. At the end of the programme, you will receive a certificate and a LinkedIn recommendation.
