Cultural Competency and Inclusive Language
To be culturally competent is to have the ability to build bridges and adapt behaviours across cultural differences, but what does this mean in practice and how do we know we are being culturally competent? As a member of your organization, how are you involved in the cultural inclusion process and how can you contribute to ensuring you are being responsive to the varying needs of all people and groups? You will learn strategies for raising the bar for creating a welcoming and inclusive environment, where people feel valued with a sense of belonging and experience wellness. This workshop will also identify how inclusive language plays a critical role. You will learn, strategies for effective cross-cultural communication, as well as examples of how certain words and body language can impact the mental well-being of others.
