Cultural Competence: Strengthening Workplace Sensitivity

June 7, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm


Thursday, June 07, 2018 9:30 AM–12:30 PM  Squirrel Hill

The intent of this training workshop is to raise awareness of the importance of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) within the workplace, as well as with residents, community partners, and other stakeholders.  The highly interactive training pushes participants to face biases, prejudices, and assumptions in a proactive and positive manner.  It encompasses definitions and examples of harassment and discrimination, and clarification of laws addressing these areas.  It also provides interactive activities focusing on addressing inappropriate behavior, valuing differences, heightening cultural awareness, and creating a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and respect in the workplace.  Building cultural competence through strengthening workplace sensitivity is essential for nonprofit organizations and government agencies to be able to thrive in today’s complex, challenging, and ever-changing world.
