Cultural Sensitivity Training


“I really wish more people from my organization would attend this training. This was so valuable, and I can think of a few other people who could really benefit from this information. Thank you for doing this.”


Immigrant and refugee families moving to Charlotte often have many challenges to overcome when they arrive—learning a new language, understanding new social systems, navigating a new culture. Charlotte has an amazing network of service providers ready to help families in need, but service providers may also run into challenges providing culturally responsive programming to international clients. Our 4-hour professional development workshop is designed to give participants the skills and resources they need to effectively communicate with international families and non-English speakers.


The training covers cultural sensitivity and recognizing cultural bias, the language-learning brain, best practices for utilizing interpreters and translation tools, and a review of local case studies and national examples.  This workshop is designed for healthcare professionals, social workers, and other community members that work with immigrant, refugee, and international clientele. Our community-based trainings have a $45 registration fee per person, which can be paid in person with cash or check, or online prior to the workshop.


We're pleased to announce that the training is now available for Continuing Education Units through AHEC. Doctors, nurses, lawyers, etc. who need CEUs for their licensing requirements can now receive them for participating in the training through our AHEC partnership. Registration fees for the trainings coordinated through AHEC are $75 per person during their priority registration period due to the CEU certifications.
