Consciousness of Differences

Tuesday Sep 22 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

In our increasingly diverse and multicultural society, it’s more important than ever to incorporate cultural awareness whenever possible. Fostering greater awareness and knowledge about today’s multicultural Hispanic communities such as traditions, beliefs, and language is taking a culturally responsive approach that benefits everyone. This intersectionality helps in identifying our own identity and how we see ourselves. It is vital to equip today’s leaders to learn and adapt to our changing communities by acquiring, embracing, and adjusting their own cultural lens.
