Building Cultural Capacity: Personal Awareness

DeEtta Jones

We are past the days when just being “aware of” or “tolerating” diversity are enough. The local, national and global opportunities and challenges facing us require a more systematic approach to developing and sustaining meaningful relationships across cultures.

In this session participants will learn about the powerful role of culture in shaping our individual and collective realities; increase awareness about the impact of unconscious bias on perception and behavior; and walk away with clear next step options for making targeted efforts to increase their effectiveness working across cultures.
