Episode Description

One thing we Americans have in common is that we are all the ancestors of immigrants. Our ancestry dictates our culture, and our culture affects who we are at work and at home. Do we embrace our cultural uniqueness properly? In business, understand that your cultural uniqueness is an asset to you and your company. In parenting, instilling in your children your cultural values and traditions make it a big part of who they are as a person. Sandra Vu Le, Esq will help us understand the intricacies of this issue. Attorney Sandra Vu Le is a speaker, trainer and President of Your Cultural Edge, a business helping corporations, non-profit organizations, and government agencies integrate the diverse culture of its people with the goals, vision, and values of its corporate culture. Join us this Thursday at 3 PM Pacific – 6 PM EDT to listen to her advice and ask her your specific questions.
