''The cultural and linguistic diversity at the ITER Organization is unique and deserves worldwide recognition,'' says Shawn Simpson, who heads the Intercultural & Language Program at Agence ITER France.
The 7th Intercultural Seminar on "21st Century Expatriation: New Perspectives" organized by Agence ITER France took place at the School of Law and Political Science of the Aix-Marseille University on 27 November 2015.

Several workshops were organized in which Masters students in intercultural negotiation; international trainers in diversity, psychology and human resources; international human resource managers and researchers learned about stress management, story telling as a new way to learn, expatriate management, and experiences.

Over 80 people from France, Japan, the Netherlands, the USA, Great Britain, Scotland, South Korea, Russia, China, Australia, Germany attended.

Shawn Simpson, who heads the Intercultural & Language Program at Agence ITER France (350 language learners and over 1,000 participants to intercultural activities every year), commented on the importance of the seminar: "The cultural and linguistic diversity at the ITER Organization is unique and deserves worldwide recognition. The aim of these seminars is to promote the exchange of new practices in intercultural research, learning and training. The people of ITER are the ground-breakers here and their experience is of great interest to intercultural professionals and students."
