Homelessness 101: Cultural Awareness on ZOOM
February 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Homelessness 101 is a series of trainings covering basic content relevant and necessary for all people working in housing and homeless services. Quarter 1 of 2022 will provide 6 sessions in the month of February.
Cultural Awareness: Cultural awareness is defined as a set of behaviors and attitudes that enable you to work effectively in multicultural situations. Cultural awareness is achieved by developing skills and practices important in cross cultural interactions and using knowledge about individuals and groups to create practices and policies to create an inclusive environment. This course was created to help individuals become more inclusive and self-aware by providing discussion, experiential activities and real-world examples that will enable them to implement change, by taking a deeper look at others as well as themselves. This workshop offers the knowledge and skills needed to enable us to recognize, respond to, and redress conditions that deny some people access to housing and other opportunities enjoyed by their peers. This workshop was constructed with an acknowledgement of both the strengths and limitations of existing frameworks for engaging the full diversity of program participants. Objectives: * Understand the Definition of Diversity, Culture, Equity, & Inclusion * Understand how diversity dimensions shape workplace identity * Learn practical tips for inclusion across cultures
