About SIETAR NW

Welcome to the home page of SIETAR NW.  SIETAR stands for “Society of Intercultural Educators, Trainers and Researchers.”

Mission of SIETAR NW:  To create a community that provides enriching programing and networking opportunities for those who value intercultural competencies and increased global understanding.

We are a group of professionals who work in the corporate, education and non-profit sectors.  Our areas of interest are varied, but we focus on understanding and improving relations and communications across cultures.  We meet on the third Thursday of every month.  Our meetings offer an excellent opportunity for networking and for professional development.  We feature experts in the intercultural field presenting on key topics.   We share information about resources, research, news of upcoming events and seminars, job openings, and life in general.  For the schedule of meetings go to the SIETAR NW calendar.

This site is designed to be useful and interactive.  There is our calendar of upcoming events, the blog page (which is available for all members to post and respond), and our resources page has links to valuable research, papers and presentations.  The Photo Gallery shows that we have fun at our meetings, too.
