[Zoom Meeting] Interconnected: Different Experiences, Shared Understanding - Cultural Sensitivity - What & How?

** Please note: registration is required via The Nonprofit Partnership's Membership Portal @ https://tnp.wildapricot.org/event-4059268 **

Please join The Nonprofit Partnership and Lydia Laythe for a new 4-part opportunity: “Interconnected: Different Experiences, Shared Understanding” a series toward understanding the intersection between trauma and cultural sensitivity.

The goal of this series is to increase our community’s understanding of trauma & cultural sensitivity, so we can build a more resilient & inclusive community that not only welcomes diversity but embraces the diversity that is already here. And by fostering inclusion & resilience, we know we’re building a strong, productive, and vibrant community.

All sessions will take place via Zoom. Attendees are strongly encouraged to virtually attend all 4 sessions, live. Please let us know if there is a session you cannot attend and we will do our best to make arrangements so you can get the full experience!

Session 2: Cultural Sensitivity – What & How? - Friday, February 12, 2021 at 10:00 AM
Session 3: Prepare Your Toolbox - Friday, February 19, 2021 at 10:00 AM

Please join us for Session 2: Cultural Sensitivity – What & How? on Friday, February 12th at 10:00 AM!
The goal of this session is to establish shared understanding around the concept “cultural sensitivity” as opposed to “cultural competence” – why that distinction is important, how we put that into practice, and what that looks like for an individual on a daily basis and for policies and systems-level change.

Key Take-Aways:
- Culture is complex, diverse, fluid, and evolving.
- Working with diverse populations requires an ongoing commitment to cultural sensitivity.
- Cultural sensitivity involves self-reflection, curiosity, & humility.
