Cultural Competency with Multicultural BRIDGE
Thursday, February 4, 2021
This event is the final of a series of virtual trainings with Multicultural BRIDGE addressing cultural competency. We welcome questions, suggestions, and other prompts in advance of the meeting, and plan to assess our efforts towards cultural competency, and how we can continue to move forward.
In recent months, we have all engaged with equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility in both our personal and professional lives. There is still work to be done, and NEP looks to educational and community resources we can offer in the future as we continue to move forward in our work.
For this session, we will discuss
- What DEI strategies have you had success with?
- What barriers are you facing in your org?
- What can NEP do to hold ourselves accountable?
- What other resources can NEP offer?
It is not necessary to have attended a past session with BRIDGE, and we encourage you to bring other members from your organization. Small breakout groups will be utilized in zoom.
