You are invited to a lecture and reception with the Hari and Madhu Varshney Visiting Scholar in Indian Studies, and Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) Visiting Scholar Dr. Kanika Bhal, at the Jack Austin Centre for Asia Pacific Business Studies. Special welcome by Mrs. Abhilasha Joshi, Consul General of India in Vancouver.
Dr. Bhal's lecture topic — Belief Systems and Business: Indian Cultural Values and Their Interpretation in the Contemporary Business Context — addresses the role that culture plays and how it is interpreted in business.

Cultures provide a frame of reference for all human interactions—interpersonal, social and economic.
