Cultural Competency Seminar for Educators

The United States has a culturally diverse population. The relative proportions of the cultural components change in size over time, and new components are frequently added. Once described as a melting pot, some populations strive to retain their cultural heritage. All of these multi-faceted groups will participate in the public school system. An understanding of cultures and an awareness of the effects on individual behaviors is important in promoting effective teaching, and in establishing meaningful communications with students and their parents.

Though building a cadre of accomplished educators reflecting this societal diversity remains a challenge, it is no longer a choice. It is now a prerequisite for educators and educational organizations to be aware of the sensitive issues unique to each culture as it relates to the education of children. Educators must cultivate cultural awareness and develop the communication tools and skills that will allow them to successfully intervene and collaborate with children of diverse cultural background and their family members and avoid having cultural differences act as obstacles to the delivery of optimal services to students and their parents.
