April 28th: Imad Diab on Cultural Understanding

Imad Diab has spent his entire career building cultural understanding. He originally went to Baghdad University in his Iraqi homeland for Petroleum Engineering and French Language. Once he started working in the oil industry his supervisors could see he was adept at interpersonal relationships and was then trained to help solve problems and build relationships among clients and workers representing many different cultures. He has since resettled in Erie and has put those same skills to work helping former refugees integrate into American society and trained the broader community about the many New Americans who now live here. He has degrees in conflict resolution, international studies, and communications from Cambridge University and PennWest Edinboro. He taught Middle Eastern Culture and Arabic language at Mercyhurst University for several years. Currently he is Program Manager and Diversity Trainer at the Multicultural Community Resource Center and on the faculty at the Erie Community College. Hear him reflect on his vast experience of different cultures.
