About the Class

Cultural diversity isn't only about how we look, behave, and the languages we speak. It is also our way of thinking, managing our time, and communicating with others. Cultures are created through communication. Embracing cultural diversity is key in team and community building. In order to develop cultural competency, we need to learn about ourselves. Self perception may impact the people we associate with socially, our values and beliefs, and how we interact with people of diverse cultures. The way we view ourselves affects our perception of others. Our identity is the frame of reference by which we experience other people. Our inner world reflects our outer. For example, self-tolerance may determine outer tolerance. In this session, participants will reflect and consider the cultural components of their identities and begin to assemble a picture of who they are.

Join the free 8 week workshop on IT4ALL Moodle website to learn about cultural diversity and how we can all benefit from the process. The workshop will begin in June, 2012. Please contact Dr. Nellie Deutsch for the enrollment key as the workshop will be password protected.
