Event description

Description

The Friendly Chat evening will be the first episode of the Integration Chat room project organized by Unity in Diversity. It will take place on the 27th of September 2017, at the Dutch Refugee Council (VWN) located in Rijswijkseplein 79, The Hague.

The focus of this chat room is to connect people of different backgrounds together, to share their socio-cultural experiences in the work and school environment, with refugees who are now preparing to commence studies or a new career in the Netherlands, and those who are already studying or working.

Why this project?

When you come into a new community, you discover the diverse cultures in play. In the course of our daily lives, these cultural differences play a role; it can be positive, and it can also be negative.

You find differences in the way your co-worker treats you and vice versa. How do you relate with your superiors? How do you mingle with your study mates? How important is keeping to time when an appointment is fixed? What if you don't want to do tasks outside your job description? Must you socialize with your study mates? Can you inform your professor when you have personal struggles that may affect your studies?

All these and more are questions that are often times culturally and socially subjective. In this chat evening, we will seat and hear people tell us about their experiences in their place of work or study. Some of them have refugee backgrounds, while others are either Dutch or Expats. This topic relates to all, and we invite you to come, chat with us, help someone overcome similar challenges, and enjoy a multicultural dinner!
