"I attended Sue Bray’s workshop “Managing the Challenges of Global Work Teams”... I did not anticipate the broader application to my day-to-day interactions with students, faculty, and administrators in my roles as professor and an associate dean...My only regret is that I wish the workshop had been longer to explore all my new questions!"
