Globalization and advances in technology have increased interconnectivity across the world. You may find yourself working on a diverse global team, interacting with people virtually across time zones and cultures. These colleagues may have beliefs, values, and a communication style that is different from your own. So, what does it take to adapt to and succeed in a global, multicultural workplace? Sarika Pruthi, Ph.D., will explore this very question in her upcoming talk, The Role of Culture in Global Workplaces: The Case of Start-Up Firms on Thursday, April 15, 2021 from 7:00-8:00 PM (PT).
In this session, Dr. Pruthi will explore the role of culture in the global workplace, and the reasons why successful entrepreneurs are often those who can effectively navigate differences in assumptions and expectations on their teams. Dr. Pruthi is an Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship at the Luca College & Graduate School of Business at San Jose State University, where she teaches introductory courses in entrepreneurship and international business. Her research on immigrant and social entrepreneurship and venture capital/private equity finance, has appeared in top peer reviewed journals. Dr. Pruth is also passionate about the cause of innovation and student success. As such, she organizes the annual Silicon Valley Innovation Challenge (SVIC) and advises the Delta Gamma and IDEAS student clubs. Prior to joining SJSU, Dr. Pruthi taught and researched at King’s College London, University of London, and the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom.
