Cultural Competence - A Journey to Improve Outcomes (October 22nd, 23rd, and 29th)
Course Description: Cultural Competence is a life-long process requiring personal awareness, education, sharing of power and intentional actions to extend social justice and equity to all. This interactive training invites learners to reflect on their cultural identities, history, and experiences, and to actively consider how each of these elements can impact outcomes with clients. Participants will engage in individual, small and large group activities focused on Anti-Oppression and Anti-Racist outcomes.
This interactive event will be facilitated in three virtual sessions during October as well as training assignments. Participants must attend all sessions in their entirety and complete all assignments to receive a certificate of completion. Partial credit will not be given. Seating is limited.
