You are invited to begin a journey which will lead to cultural competency by registering for Module 1- Background and Foundational Concepts and participating in the Module’s third and final monthly training and application event: Reconciled Churches: Models of Cultural Competency.
Module 1 provides information on theories about human behavior and the individual and group behaviors that contribute to as well as eliminate or reduce bias and prejudice in society and local settings.
The Cultural Competency Forum is a platform for training and practical application designed and created to realize the objectives of the 2019 Resolution on Anti-Racism Training, which called for intentional anti-racism training for conference clergy and leaders.
The Cultural Competency Forum is a two-year program of training and practical application structured to provide essential and continuing education with which clergy and congregations will gain awareness, build knowledge, acquire skills, and form attitudes that will equip them to become culturally competent. This will provide a core of knowledge and skills for persons to progress further and participate in later Cultural Competency Forum training to teach interested persons skills for teaching cultural competency to local churches and other in settings.
