Cultural Competency with Multicultural BRIDGE 

Wednesday, November 10, 2021

9:00 AM - 11:00 AM EST 

Gwendolyn VanSant of BRIDGE returns for a session on race equity and bias. Through dialogue and interaction, participants will explore race on the individual, interpersonal, cultural and systemic levels. As presenters, an exploration of what is required in the wake of the pandemic and racial reckoning is necessary to sustain and advance the work.

Founded in 2007, Multicultural BRIDGE is a grassroots organization dedicated to advancing equity and justice by promoting cultural competence, positive psychology, and mutual understanding and acceptance. The organization acts as a catalyst for change through collaboration, education, training, dialogue, fellowship and advocacy.

Gwendolyn VanSant is a trainer & facilitator in diversity leadership, cultural competence and coalition building for justice and equity. She is the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founding Director of Multicultural BRIDGE and contributes to several teams across the region to promote safety, equity and trust in communities and workplaces. Gwendolyn has worked with corporations, schools, colleges and universities, law enforcement, hospitals, teaching and leadership institutes, and more.  In addition to designing cultural competence trainings, Gwendolyn is a frequent speaker and long-time activist deeply rooted in gender equity and positive psychology.
