    Professional Women’s Group (PWG) is hosting a cross-cultural communication meeting for both business and real life situations called, “AVOIDING THE POTHOLES” on Saturday, August 18. It will be held at the popular Tin Jo Restaurant in San José and starts at 9:30am to 12:00pm, with an optional lunch to follow.


    The workshop will encourage open and honest dialogue on the many challenges encountered when people from different cultures meet and do business. Participants will share dilemmas, find practical solutions to each perceived conflict, and discuss findings with others who are experiencing similar situations. Fee for the workshop is ¢2.000 for club members and ¢3.000 for non-members. Attendees will pay for their own lunch (optional).

    Ana Hernández, the workshop facilitator, has worked with Diversity and Cross-Cultural issues for over 20 years. In the 90’s, she served on the Minority Committee of the National Education Association in Washington D.C., and currently, she works as a coordinator for Study Abroad programs with college students from the USA. She has been published for 12 years in “El Residente,” the Association of Residents of Costa Rica magazine, on a wide range of topics involving Costa Rican culture. Ana lived for several years in the United States and has certainly experienced her share of culture clashes!

    Also during the meeting, the PWG Scholarship Drive will be launched and the Coffee with Strangers program will be announced.

    The PWG is an interest Group of Women’s Club of Costa Rica (WCCR), a social and service organization founded in 1940, supporting public school libraries with books and furniture, selected University students with scholarships, and Libros para todos in conjunction with LaNación. WCCR is an English-language organization and all levels of English skill are welcome.
