Cross-Cultural Competency: Digging a Little Deeper
In an effort to make our libraries more welcoming and inclusive spaces for our diverse communities, the Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS) is partnering with Dorcas International Institute to provide a series of workshops on the topic of Cross-Cultural Competency. The second of three workshops, this session builds on the introduction to the language of cross-cultural competency. Moving on from the basics, we will discuss how to apply this information in thinking critically about the spaces, environments, and interpersonal situations in which you operate every day.
Brandon Lozeau, Community Relations Manager at Dorcas International Institute, will lead this discussion. Dorcas International Institute provides refugee resettlement, U.S.Citizenship, ESOL, adult education classes, and other programs designed to build a stronger and more connected community in Rhode Island.
Materials from Session 1 - Cross-Cultural Competency: The Language will be made available before this workshop for those unable to attend the entire series.
