Cultural Competence FIG Meeting

We have been discussing ways to build trust. One way trust is destroyed is through microaggressions and unconscious bias, which was the topic of the Cultural Competence breakout sessions at the Leadership Retreat in November. Those breakouts struck a chord with a lot of people; join us in SSB 414 as we explore the topic further.
