Work Session with UAE Permanent Mission to the UN

Understanding different perspectives, cultures and religions are fundamental in order to establish diplomatic relationships.  One of the best ways to allow our students to develop these skills was to participate in a work session with the diplomats who form the United Arab Emirates’ Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York City.  With more than 10 years of experience in diplomatic positions, Mr. Saud AlShamsi, Ms. Maisoon Al-Dah alongside Mr. MJ Al Sallal engaged in discussions about several global issues such as sustainability, clean energy resources, technological developments, touristic expansion, and cybercrime.    This encounter allowed our delegation to fully comprehend the significance of intercultural relationships and the respect that must exist towards different ideologies and societies.  Without a doubt, this amazing learning opportunity will shape their negotiating abilities and tactics.
