As we celebrate the annual Libraries Week (May 8-15th) with the official theme “Library – the whole world in one place”, some spectacular events will take place in the MUG Main Library.

On Wednesday, May 11th, we would like to invite you to participate in the cross-cultural communication workshop How to be culturally intelligent and why worth trying? run by Professor Natasza Kosakowska-Berezecka. The event will take place at 1 p.m. in the Reading Room no. 2 in the MUG Main Library and will be held in English. You can count on more attractions after the meeting during the “Intercultural Integration Coffee”. Thanks to cooperation with our partners – SASS, Resource Team, Phi Delta Epsilon, MedHum, Welcome Point, Gazeta GUMed and GUMed Museum – you will get the chance to compare medical bags from XIX and XXI century, participate in numerous funny activities and have a less formal chat. Snacks – from all over the world – included.

From May 9th the exhibition-surprise "72 in 1" will be presented. We are sure that – according to libraries week theme – it is possible to create the whole world in one place. You won't need 80 days to explore it, here it will take just a week!



About workshop:

We live in the global world that is challenged with global problems – the pandemic, climate crisis, migration and refugees seeking shelter from horrendous conflicts and wars. We are all interdependent and if we do not learn how to cooperate across nations, cultures and regions we will not come even close to solving any of these problems. Cultural intelligence is one of the key social competences necessary to foster such cooperation and a necessary asset if you work in cross-cultural setting. During this 1,5 hour meeting we will focus on how to be inclusive and open to diversity and develop our cultural intelligence that can be used in solving interpersonal conflicts.

Natasza Kosakowska-Berezecka has a PhD in Psychology and works as an Associate Professor in the Division of Cross-Cultural Psychology and Psychology of Gender at the University of Gdańsk. Her main area of practice and research is gender equality, diversity and work-life balance within the area cross-cultural psychology and her special interests are mechanisms of bias, social change and organizational cues fostering social capital and diversity within organizations and societies across the world. She lectures at Polish universities but also abroad (Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge; Arctic University of Norway, Tromso; University of Brunel, Uxbridge, London; Universidad de Granada, Spain; Delhi University, India; University of Geneve, Switzerland). As diversity expert she also co-authored the Integrative Model for Migrants for City of Gdańsk.

Hope to see you in the Library!
