When we talk about being culturally competent, many of us think about “celebrating diversity.” What if there was more to it than that? What if we could start looking at the world with an eye towards being more aware, not only of other people but also of yourself?

Developing cultural competence includes examining our own biases and developing the willingness to learn and be educated from a different point of view. In addition, it involves examining our societal rituals, roles, and values with the acknowledgment that other people have other ways of thinking, doing, and believing.

Being culturally competent can help with your ability to interact successfully with all kinds of people. In this diversity training program, participants will cultivate their ability to understand, communicate with, and interact with people across cultures. Being culturally competent can help improve outcomes in relationships both personally and professionally.

Course Objectives
  • Explain the difference between celebrating diversity and being culturally competent
  • Describe the four components of cultural competency
  • Utilize practical, hands-on information that they can apply to their professional relationships immediately

About 21 percent of people with a disability were employed in 2022, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. That is the highest rate since the U.S. began tracking this statistic in 2008. Because individuals with disabilities are increasingly seeking employment in the workplace, it’s important for employers to ensure they can create an inclusive culture and reasonably accommodate those individuals, whether they are carrying out their tasks in the office or remotely.

Many employers avoid following through on implementing disability inclusion because of the perceived cost of adapting a workplace; however, various studies have found that implementing policies and providing reasonable accommodations cost much less than many employers expect.

Some of the ways an organization can become disability inclusive include:

  • Increasing awareness among their management teams about fostering a disability-inclusive culture.
  • Providing the accommodations employees with disabilities may need to do their jobs effectively, whether that means making sure they have adaptive furniture, equipment, or devices; assistive technology; or accessible employee materials and forms of communication.

This workshop helps management teams:

  • Understand the importance of disability inclusion and the steps they can take to incorporate such policies and practices into their workplace.
  • Realize what they need to do to make their workplace accommodations accessible according to state guidelines.
  • Recognize the many intangible ways they can support employees with disabilities.
