Please join like-minded “global thinkers” for a lively monthly discussion on the major political/economic issues that our world is currently experiencing.
6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Initially, this event will be a virtual zoom discussion with break out-groups.
Attitudes towards time may be different in cultures throughout the world. This impacts diplomacy, global economics, and business in often significant ways. Time orientation reflects a cultural or national preference toward being past-orientated, future-orientated, or present-orientated. Consequently, the way a country conducts business, and even diplomacy reflects how it views time. Consider portraying the concept of time on a spectrum. On one side we have the past focus, while on the other we have the future focus. Every country falls somewhere on that spectrum. Where do you think the US falls on this spectrum? What are some of your experiences in business dealings, travel, and even relationships with cultures that have a different sense of time?
