We live in a global society, which means that the faces of our schools and classrooms will continue to change.  One of the greatest challenges schools and educators face is working with and reaching culturally and ethnically diverse students.  To meet this challenge, we must become culturally competent professionals.  This means that we are aware of our personal assumptions, actively attempting to understand worldviews of culturally diverse populations, actively developing and practicing appropriate strategies and skills in working with culturally diverse students, and advocating on behalf of the students with whom we work.  Becoming culturally competent is an aspirational, continuous process.

Topics Covered Include:

  • What is cultural competency?
  • Who am I?
  • Assumptions and stereotypes
  • The baggage we bring
  • Microaggressions
  • Implicit bias
  • Cultivating relationships with diverse learners
  • Working with families of diverse learners
  • The school culture

Who Should Attend:

  • Those working with diverse populations of students, parents, or community members
  • Those wishing to learn more about working with diverse populations
  • Those willing to take an honest look at themselves to become facilitators of change

Cost:   $85 per attendee   Continuing Education certificate provided, must attend full program.
