The Cross-Cultural Conversations Council invites community members to attend this important training to learn about, uncover, and address systemic racism, biases and barriers for our community members.

Through self-assessment and facilitated activities, participants gain increased understanding of their personal background and perspective on the implications of how their experience affects how they think and react to others from different backgrounds.

Organizations discover the value of practicing a more open and inclusive mindset into day-to-day operations

Session Agenda -  9:00 am - 1:00 pm

"Cross-Cultural Conversations, Part I: Striving toward Improved Sensitivity in Communication and Clearer Understanding of the Effects of Privilege and Unconscious Bias"

·         Define cultural awareness, sensitivity, and competence
·         Identify issues of equality vs. equity
·         Recognize the influence of “isms” in our communication
·         Recognize privilege and bias
·         Identify ways to bridge barriers

“Cross-Cultural Conversations, Part II: Steps to Overcoming Barriers"

·         Where do you stand on the continuum of awareness?
·         Addressing micro-aggression's
·         Recognizing unconscious bias
·         Using tools to enhance communication and understanding

Having a better understanding of ourselves, our colleagues, and our clientele will lead to more cohesion and greater effectiveness in our interactions. With improved communication and understanding, staff will be better equipped to adjust expectations and connect in a more productive manner with others.
