Exploring Cultural Awareness, Sensitivity and Competence

This workshop/discussion will help us identify misconceptions developed through our lives related to diversity, culture, and cultural competency.  Participants will have the opportunity to self-assess, reflect, and learn how to provide a higher level of care and understanding of their peers and students, providing tools that will enrich their preparation to navigate graduate school and for their careers.

This session will not be recorded.
