PUBLIC INVITED TO FREE “CULTURAL COMPETENCY” WORKSHOPS
PASADENA, Calif.—The public is invited to attend a free, three-part workshop-discussion series on “Cultural Competency” sponsored by the Pasadena Human Relations Commission. All workshops will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays—May 25, June 22 and July 20—in the Pasadena City Council Chamber at City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Ave., Second Floor.
The following sessions are planned:
- Workshop 1, May 25, “Access Denied: Technology Bias”
How important is the internet in the United States today? Does the inability to access the internet limit individuals’ ability to grow? How does this affect Pasadena?
- Workshop 2, June 22, “Who am I? Breaking Through Prejudice by Understanding Ourselves”
Why do we judge others? Why are we uncomfortable around certain groups of people?
- Workshop 3, July 20, “Reintegration: Problems Faced by Ex-cons Trying to Find Housing After Released From Prison”
If you can’t go home where do you go? Why is so difficult for ex-cons to find housing? How does this affect a community?
The series is held in conjunction with Banks Consultants.
