  • Have you updated your Cultural Competence yet?

    Cultural differences can lead to misunderstanding, suspicion, disorientation, frustration and even anger. However, cultural differences can also greatly enrich how we see the world, lead to breakthrough thinking, and expose and create better ways of getting along and getting things done.

    Well, here's 1 more opportunity for you. Classes are FREE:
    • May 23, 2014 | 11am - 1pm | Indiana University Northwest | 3400 Broadway | Hawthorn Hall, Rm 107 | Gary
