CULTURE AS WE KNOW IT: The role it plays in our daily lives
By: Noël Bonam, Director of Multicultural Affairs for the State of Maine
We often hear the words "culturally competent services" in professional lives, maybe a bit too often. What does that really mean when each individual brings his or her own cultural frame-work? We've come a long way in understanding differences and in developing highly evolved systems and practices to meet the needs of our clientele which is increasingly becoming racially and ethnically diverse. This talk takes you on a journey of self assessment and personal development that is relevant to your professional growth. This workshop is for professionals who engage diverse organizational stakeholders as it explores the role of culture and changing dynamics within an organization.
