Have you ever noticed how some people can sit at the table (literal or figurative) with others and interpret unfamiliar or even ambiguous gestures or practices like a native? We call that "cultural intelligence." Asma Ahmad, founder of Zaha, wants us all to cultivate it. Zaha provides immersive cultural experiences to connect and engage with people from other cultures, through co-created food experiences and storytelling.
This week it's curiosity in service of community. Happy Thanksgiving!

Join us again next time when Kristy Johnson of the MIT Media Lab makes the case for considering a neurodiverse understanding of curiosity.
