We are excited to announce a FREE workshop on Cultivating Cultural Competence! This 2.5-day workshop aims to equip coalition members, community partners, community organization leaders, and champions with the necessary knowledge and skills to develop cross-cultural partnerships effectively.

This workshop will dive deep into cultural diversity and competency strategies to enable practical work in cross-cultural situations. Through storytelling, song, interactive activities, and discussions, Roberto Dansie will walk us through the teachings of cultural wisdom.
