Using his experience in the Peace Corps, Cody will discuss cultural sensitivity, including positive ways to communicate cross-culturally and build connections and trust with students of disparate backgrounds.
About the Presenter: Cody has a cultural anthropology degree from Cal State Fullerton and joined SOW in 2016 after working three years total in Sub-Saharan Africa (in Uganda with Krochet Kids and as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Malawi helping to improve opportunities for women and girls).
