10-7-2024: Practices of Working through Conflict
Time: 3pm Germany (90 mins)
How do we navigate misunderstandings and conflict? The last session focuses on the practice of working through conflict. While conflict looks different across cultures, how it is resolved is also different. It is even different in the case of international partnerships. Our panellists will be challenged to offer their perspectives on ways to navigate conflict in intra- and international partnerships.
with: CJ Ochoco, Samba Yonga
Facilitated by: Lloyd Nyikadzino
