CANCELLED: Cross-Cultural Competency: Change Makers

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. You’ve learned the language, you’ve built some self-awareness. Now what? In the third and final workshop, let’s take what we’ve learned and apply the knowledge in ways to improve your spaces, programs, and services to better serve diverse communities across Rhode Island.

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- The Language and Session 2 - Digging a Little Deeper will be made available before this workshop for those unable to attend the entire series.
