I-CARE – Ready for an interview?

The project partners are currently searching for interview partners that would be ready to share their experience and expertise in terms of intercultural care in the social and healthcare sector. Specifically, we are interested in finding out how the sitution actually looks like in practice: are there sufficient offers on intercultural topics, do employees feel secure in this area, what are the challenges, what are the benefits of intercultural teams on the one hand and interculturally trained personnel on the other hand?
