CULTURAL COMPETENCY & EQUITY AT WORK

It isn't news that cultural competence has become essential for todays nonprofits. To meet the changing needs of the people they serve and remain competitive in the marketplace, nonprofits must learn the methods, practices and values that define cultural competency. In this engaging, interactive workshop, you'll explore the five dimensions of cultural competence; conduct an assessment of your workplace; learn about local and national demographic trends; and gain tools to evaluate your efforts. Building cultural competency is a continuous journey that nonprofit leaders choose to take, because the end result is a more inclusive, connected and effective organization.
