Add to calendar

What does it take to adapt to and succeed in a global, multicultural workplace? Using examples of fast-growing start-up firms, this session will explore the role of culture in the global workplace, and the reasons why successful entrepreneurs are often those who can effectively navigate differences in assumptions and expectations on their teams. Join us to learn how culture impacts the work environment, and gain insights you can use throughout your career--whether you’re working for a large or small company.

Our guest speaker will be Sarika Pruthi. Sarika is Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship at the Lucas College & Graduate School of Business, San Jose State University (SJSU).
