Workshop: Becoming Culturally Competent in the 21st Century
America has always been a country full of diverse people and cultures. Historically our approach has been to assimilate into dominant cultures values, norms and customs.
Today we are learning to become multicultural. But cultivating these skills doesn’t come easy nor do they happen overnight. We must unpack the ways we’ve been socialized to think about differences, engage in courageous conversations and develop new ways of being.
By working together to develop our cultural competence individually and institutionally we can each take part in shaping our world into one where everyone benefits through inclusivity and the honoring of differences.
America is changing. Are you ready and willing to be a part of shaping that change?
