Effective Intercultural Practice Workshop

Date: Wednesday November 1st 2017 9:00 am to Wednesday November 1st 2017 4:00 pm
Place: Multipurpose Room 6, Commonwealth Community Recreation Centre
This interactive workshop (formerly titled "Working with Immigrant & Refugee Communities") hosted by the Centre for Race and Culture and the Multicultural Health Brokers Co-operative is intended to examine the concept of culture, the effect culture has in one's personal and professional life, as well as the role biases and power can play in our interactions with others.

Through this workshop, participants will explore:
  • What culture is and how our own cultural lens influences our work
  • Differences between immigrant and refugee status and the economic and social experiences of refugees in Edmonton
  • Power and privilege and its impact on relationships
  • Opportunities to practice intercultural skills in small groups with community leaders (Somali, Sudanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipino, Spanish speaking, South Asian and Cambodian)
This one-day workshop is facilitated by Kaitlin Lauridsen.
