Help your students, staff, and colleagues understand the complexity of cultural diversity. Use this graphic to gain a deeper understanding of cultural dynamics and cultural misunderstandings. Increase your ability to consider personal values and attitudes, ideas of what different people find to be “acceptable” or not, and what matters to them versus what doesn’t.

What have people written about my Cultural Iceberg graphic?

“It is an excellent illustration of the cultural elements that color how we understand ourselves, others, and the world. Culture also undergirds our mindset, beliefs, and how we understand and interpret the world, as well as influencing our world view(s) and personal character traits.”

“It summarizes the whole concept perfectly.”

Culture influences so many aspects of our interactions, the way we respond to others, the way we communicate, and the way we lead or follow. It's great for PYP Who We Are, Theory of Knowledge (TOK), global perspectives, and other studies of internationalism, diversity, and culture.

I've had so many requests for this on my website that I'm finally putting up a large version. Please contact me if you would like to use it in a presentation or publication.
