Dr. Saba Sattar speaks at IAFIE Virtual Conference


On June 6, IWP faculty member and alumna Dr. Saba Sattar captivated audiences at the 2024 IAFIE Virtual Conference with her presentation on confronting cultural and cognitive biases in intelligence studies.

She led two panels, steering the discussion even when other panelists were unable to attend. Her panel focused on defining cultural intelligence, highlighting obstacles such as ethnocentrism and mirror imaging, and proposing actionable steps for its integration into higher education.

Through compelling examples and a nuanced understanding of the subject matter, Dr. Sattar underscored the importance of balancing cultural sensitivity with addressing pressing issues, particularly in regions where democratic values are not the norm. Her emphasis on practical strategies, including faculty development initiatives, resonated strongly with the attendees.
