Cultural Competency

03/14/2019 09:00 AM - 04:00 PM CST

Description

Cultural competency is the ability to understand, communicate with and effectively interact with a variety of people. Because our workforce is increasingly diverse, we often work with people of different gender identities, race, religion, socio-economic status, and sexual orientation. However, our preconceived notions, stereotypes, and assumptions often influence our interactions without us even being aware. Through this interactive training, build your personal awareness, reflect on your own assumptions, and examine how your behaviors impact your daily responsibilities.

After attending this training, you will be able to:

  • Examine your own identity in relation to power and privilege
  • Identify and combat the implicit bias you bring to your work
  • Discuss the impact of systemic, institutional, and individual “isms” on your job seekers
  • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Assess your organization’s cultural competency and identify areas of improvement
