‘Cross-Cultural Engagement’ Conference Comes to Webster Oct. 11 & 12

Webster University will host “Cross-Cultural Engagement: Building a Diverse and Dynamic Community,” a conference sponsored by the Regional Arts Commission and Gitana Productions, on Oct. 11 and 12. Events will be held at various locations on the Webster Groves campus.

As part of the university’s diversity mission, the Master of Arts in Counseling Program and Multicultural Studies Committee collaborated to bring “Cross-Cultural Engagement” to Webster University. As a result, the conference has several events that are free to Webster University faculty and students. Among them are a film and speaker series on Oct. 11 in the Winifred Moore Auditorium.

The conference’s keynote speaker is Howard J. Ross, a nationally recognized expert on diversity, leadership, and organizational change. Ross will be introduced by Webster President Elizabeth J. Stroble. The keynote speech, at 8:30 a.m. in the Community Music School, is open to the Webster community.
