Cultural competency training providing foundation for an inclusive environment
The Colorado Public Health Training Center, at the Center for Public Health Practice, will host two upcoming seminars on cultural competency this June.
“Cultural Competency: The Foundation for an Inclusive Environment” is a half day, interactive workshop, participants will learn techniques on how to work effectively in multi‐cultural settings. The goal is to make clear that cultural competence is an active and ongoing process that one attempts to aspire rather than achieve.
Participants will gain skills in the following:
• To be active in the process of becoming aware of personal assumptions about human behavior, values, biases, and preconceived notions.
• To create policies and procedures that enable organizations to work effectively cross‐culturally.
• To learn to develop and incorporate culturally relevant and appropriate programs, materials and interventions.
Registration is required to attend this free seminar on either day:
