Whats intercultural awareness?

Intercultural awareness refers to the awareness of our own cultural identity, values and beliefs and the knowledge and acceptance of other’s cultures. Intercultural awareness removes cultural barriers and brings a better understanding of ourselves and a better appreciation of those who are different. This increases interpersonal skills, helps us relate to people from other cultures and helps to build connections in a more meaningful way.
