The rise of globalization and the international labor movement has sparked the growth of opportunities for individuals to accumulate multicultural experiences and develop multicultural backgrounds. As individuals gain more diverse perspectives through multicultural experiences and as societies become more multicultural, what are the potential positive and negative effects on the social processes? In this symposium, we focus on the effects of multicultural experiences on social dynamics and discuss their implications for individuals and organizations. The purpose of this symposium is to feature new research that "zooms in" on how multicultural experiences shape social behaviors at an interpersonal level and "zooms out" to explore how multicultural experiences shape social networks more broadly. Inspired by the Academy of Management 2021 theme, "Bringing the Manager Back in Management," these projects extend research and theory on how multicultural backgrounds help managers harvest greater social tolerance and overcome intergroup biases, as well as develop social capital that leads to personal and managerial outcomes.Presentations:
