Come join us in Stamm for our 3rd TCK Symposium! This year we will be discussing how multicultural skills can be an advantage in getting/succeeding in a given career. There will be a reception followed by a keynote presentation and a panel discussion.

The symposium will touch on themes familiar to TCKs but is also aimed at anybody with an international background/interest. (Such as those who have studied or hope to work abroad.)
