According to The National Center for Cultural Competency, cultural brokering has been defined as “…bridging, linking or mediating between groups or persons of different cultural backgrounds to effect change” (Jezewski, 1990).

Emmanuel Oppong recently presented to a group of Emerging Leaders in Minnesota. He encouraged attendees to venture out of their ordinary routine to create new experiences-something travelers often do. These experiences drive our understanding of others; creating new filters by combining both knowledge and experiences. Travel changes perspectives.
