Microaggressions & Becoming Culturally ResponsiveMicroaggressions & Becoming Culturally ResponsiveThe webinar will focus on Intentional Language and is the final part of our 3 webinar series on "Microagressions and Becoming Culturally Responsive". The webinar will focus on Intentional Language.

Join us for Friday's session even if you haven't seen the first 2 parts. It's accessible to people looking to create a more culturally responsive environment (both personally and professionally).

African Americans have experienced the weight of being subjected to cultural biases that existed long before they entered this world. In this interactive webinar, participants will examine, discuss, and challenge issues related to cultural differences; consider the difference between being culturally sensitive and culturally responsive; learn self-care tools that will help them care for themselves as they continue this process; and explore ways to abandon thoughts and actions that interfere with how we interact with each other.

 

This webinar will be presented by Advanced Level Facilitators: Waynette Brock and Charlene AkuaRose Feathers.

 

Participants will be able to use new skills and knowledge to:

  • Actively challenge previously unknown micro-aggressive attitudes/behaviors.
  • Further develop personal self-care strategies as they continue to challenge these attitudes/behaviors.
  • Promote to their colleagues the importance of self-care strategies when navigating cultural differences in out-of-home care.
