PRESENTS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM by ZOOM!
ON THE ROAD TO DIVERSITY AWARENESS AND COMPETENCY
Tuesday, November 30, 2021 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m
Many litigants increasingly come from diverse cultural, ethnic, religious and racial backgrounds. Successful advocacy requires an understanding of, respect for and sensitivity to these differences. Join our panel on ZOOM for an understanding of cultural competency and how to apply it effectively in your practice. We will also have a lively discussion about the insidious nature of anti-black racism in child welfare and how to challenge it.
