Cultural diversity, competence, awareness, and cross-cultural empathy. In SNAP-Ed we recognize that improving our understanding of people from different backgrounds is critical to our success. This highly interactive workshop aims to help trainees build on existing strengths and gain additional insights into how to enhance appreciation of our similarities and differences. Together we’ll explore the dimensions of diversity, ways to enhance empathy, and the concept of cultural humility as well as share tools and techniques to improve your ability to work with people from varying backgrounds.
