We all would like to believe that we are aware of Cultural Diversity Competency (CDC), but what exactly does it stand for? Helen Wong Smith says it’s the ability to function with awareness, knowledge, and interpersonal skill when engaging people of different backgrounds, assumptions, beliefs, values, and behaviors. In this workshop you’ll be challenged to examine personal perceptions that might surprise you and, you’ll be introduced to strategies that will increase your ability to practice inclusion.

Who Should Attend: Archivists, librarians, staff, and managers who provide any type of information services.

This course is scheduled for July 13-15, 2021, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. CENTRAL (each day). This course has recently been updated by the course instructor, Helen Wong Smith to bring a rich discussion/experience around this topic.
