"The understanding of, and sensitivity to, "culture" leads to greater harmony, effectiveness & success within the organization and throughout the community"

-Dr. Ettie Zilber

Ettie enjoys writing and sharing her reflections, observations and research with her colleagues and communities both locally and internationally. The best outcome of the writing is the feedback she receives from people when they respond through emails and even face to face. It is exciting to receive that feedback.
