About the Program
Whether you currently work with newcomers or want to become more involved in supporting refugee rights, this training will help you build cultural competency skills and put them into practice. Through this training, you will gain the resources you need to help educate others in your workplace or community.
Delivered in a train-the-trainer format, this program is designed for volunteers, service providers, private refugee sponsorship groups, government employees, business groups, or anyone interested in building their skills and knowledge to tackle the barriers newcomer refugees face in our workplaces and communities.
This workshop can be tailored to specific groups as a 2-day professional development opportunity. The facilitator will work with your team to generate directly applicable competencies to make your workplace more welcoming and inclusive.
Graduates of the Building Intercultural Competence workshops can consider this their next step in learning.
