Event description

Description

Cultural Competency is the ability to value diversity and similarities among all people, understand and effectively respond to cultural differences, and engage in cultural self assessment at the individual and organizational level. Through an integrative arts experience and unique role-play techniques this workshop will explore and examine personal and societal biases in the workplace with an opportunity for participants to address their own biases, judgments and stereotypes; understanding unconscious bias and micro-inequities and identifying strategies to create a climate of respect and inclusion.
