Intercultural intelligence in the context of COVID-19: How we might help students face this moment without letting covert bias, fear and xenophobia create barriers where there should be bridges.
In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been a sharp rise in xenophobic reactions and commentaries by public figures and in the media, particularly as regards Eastern cultures. The speakers argue that a useful strategy in response to this may lie in the development of students' intercultural intelligence.

28 October | Suniya Luthar and Nina Kumar
In this webinar, Dr. Suniya Luthar and Nina Kumar will present world-class scientific research on resilience with cutting-edge approaches to analytics, and innovative ways to best apply findings. Data from over 15,000 students, who were assessed in 2019, and data on 15,000 students and 3,500 faculty and staff members assessed during distance learning in 2020 will be integrated to present a holistic view of school community well-being over time. The presenters will highlight the most important, modifiable risk and protective processes that have emerged across these accumulated data, and will describe best practices that schools have implemented to bolster well-being.
