The Cultural Intelligence Initiative at SMU (CIQ@SMU) is offering faculty, staff and students opportunities this fall to examine how our tribal identities shape our everyday interactions.

CIQ@SMU will present “Hidden Scripts,” a seminar that explores how geographical, age, gender, political, economic, racial and sexual identities affect how individuals collaborate with others and make decisions. The next seminars will be from 2 to 4:30 p.m. September 19, October 10 and November 2 in Umphrey Lee Center.

Campus community members may register online for the seminars here.

“Faculty, staff and students have provided input and inspiration that have shaped ‘Hidden Scripts’ since we piloted the seminar earlier this spring,” says Maria Dixon Hall, senior advisor to the Provost for cultural intelligence and associate professor of corporate communication and public affairs in Meadows School of the Arts. “Participants in ‘Hidden Scripts’ will discuss concepts including cultural identities and affinities, and how these narratives can support or hinder our abilities to work and learn with one another.”
