Social Work sponsors ‘Critical Cultural Competency’ workshop June 15
The Social Work Professional Program is sponsoring a workshop titled “Critical Cultural Competency” on Monday, June 15, in the Phoenix Room. This workshop, developed and facilitated by Crossroads Antiracism Organizing & Training (http://crossroadsantiracism.org/) is “designed to help participants create the spaces to be self-reflective about our cultural shaping as individuals and institutions, understand the power dynamics in society that impact us, develop the skills to interrupt old patterns and inequitable practices that limit access and exclude some people from our institutions, build trust and clear communication and begin to understand how to make decisions based on multiple perspectives where all people can be heard and represented.” The workshop is from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Participants are asked to commit to the full training. Lunch will be included as part of the program. Registration is free and is open to UW-Green Bay faculty and staff, and community affiliates of Social Work. (No students, please.) Registration is limited to the first 70 respondents. If you are interested in attending, please complete the short registration form. The workshop organizer, Jolanda Sallmann, will send you an email notification either confirming your seat for the workshop or indicating you have been placed on a waiting list. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
