Cultural experiences and professional identity

Ensuring you work and socialise with people from different cultures helps to establish a professional identity that enables you to succeed in global contexts.

Building networks across different cultures will increase your employability, build your professional identity and create global opportunities. You can build personal and professional culturally diverse networks by:

  • Taking every opportunity to learn about and engage with different cultures.
  • Participating in work integrated learning opportunities that embrace cultural diversity.
  • Learning a new language to broaden your cultural awareness and appreciate cultural diversity.
  • Participating in global mobility opportunities to immerse yourself in another culture and gain a global perspective on employability and your PI.
