How does social class, gender, region, religion, disability, ethnic group, race and sexual orientation impact schools, the work place and organizations? What influences do micro-cultures have on how people see the world?
Moving from “cultural awareness” to “cultural competence” is a process for professionals who work in – as well as serve – non-dominant communities. In this session, participants will learn about cultures that impact the families and communities they serve. They will become more comfortable discussing these topics, as well as working through their own understanding of issues. The presenter will provide strategies to take back to your school, office or organization.
