Gathering diverse stakeholders for community conversations is an important strategy for healing racial divides and building trust among different racial and ethnic groups, law enforcement, and local elected officials. Humans communicate on many levels: spoken language, tone, body language, style, and personality.The fact that we have complex cultural identities and a host of differing past experiences increases the probability of cross-cultural miscommunications.
This workshop provides an in-depth focus on major cross-cultural communication theories, ways that cultural values, power, privilege, and differences affect the way we communicate, tools for questioning assumptions, and ways to improve cross-cultural communications. Workshop facilitators show leaders resources and materials to help kick off, prepare for, and facilitate conversations about race, bias, and equity.
This event is 1 of 3 workshops. You can view the details of the other workshops: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Workshop and Everyday Anti-Racism Workshop.
Registration is free and light drinks will be served.
