Webinar: Impact of COVID-19 on International Assignees

EventsImpact of COVID-19 on International Assignees Webinar, Tri-State SIETAR. April 23, 2020.

Tri-State (NY-NJ-CT) SIETAR (Society for Education, Training and Research) have opened up their webinar on the impact of Covid-19 on international assignees’ mental health and approaches to overcome the challenges. International assignees tend to be highly resilient, having coped with the stresses of relocation and cultural adaptation. The stresses of Covid-19 can exacerbate unique expat circumstances, creating challenges that may be more than they bargained for.

In this webinar, Mercedes Naficy D’Angelo and Rensia Melles will discuss the impact of adverse events or crises on the mental health aspects of cultural adaptation and culture shock. They will offer tips and coping techniques to support assignees with these uncertain times away from home.
