Melting pot. Marble cake. No, we're not talking cooking, we are talking about how America has long viewed itself as a nation that welcomes peoples from all walks of life, where "all men are created equal." As we enter into what some call a "post-racial" era, there are times when it seems that embracing diversity and promoting inclusion is an increasingly challenging task. This webinar looks to address the issue of cultural competency and aims to help facilitate more positive conversation, and ultimately interpersonal relationships, with those who may or may not be replicas of ourselves. The hope is to make it as fun and interactive, and still useful, as possible.
