"The Intercultural Leadership Program, one of Penn’s lesser known gems, is quietly empowering a diverse group of students to lead by example through effective cross-cultural communication. The ILP engages exceptional students in a flexible and responsive weekend of written, spoken, artistic and kinesthetic techniques to, amongst others, drill down into our pre-conceived biases and notions and build us back up as promising intercultural leaders. My social entrepreneurship group incorporated the ILP skills with their Penn education to facilitate a free teaching session on credit scores, addressing a portion of this country’s financial literacy deficit but focusing it on the Penn and International House Philadelphia populations of students. For me as a nurse, the ILP in combination with my master’s education at Penn has uniquely equipped me to go out and tackle the most complex of modern healthcare problems with strong intercultural awareness and understanding."
