Cultural Competence ERG Training

The Employee Resource Group (ERG) program is hosting three special training sessions for ERG members during the 2017-2018 academic year.  ERGs allow members to connect with other employees who share similar interests and a common bond or background.  The training sessions are designed to educate and support ERG members as they work within their groups to foster a more diverse, inclusive workplace at Columbus State.


Please join your colleagues for January’s session:


Cultural Competence ERG Training

Do organizations where we learn and work have a responsibility to ensure all of its members feel recognized and affirmed in how they identity?  If so, how can organizations be certain that unconscious biases and prejudices don’t interfere with the working and learning experiences of its members, partners and visitors?  This interactive session on Cultural Competence will examine the intersectionality of identity and lived experiences with bias.  Participants will then be facilitated through practice in examining the impact the four components of cultural competence have on all who are engaged by an organization.
