TAKING CARE OF DISABILITY BUSINESS – Webinar Series 12: Cultural Competence
FIRST PEOPLES DISABILITY NETWORK AUSTRALIA (FPDN) INVITE YOU TO JOIN US FOR OUR ‘TAKING CARE OF DISABILITY BUSINESS’ FREE WEBINAR SERIES FOR NATIONAL DISABILITY ADVOCACY PROVIDERS, SERVICE PROVIDERS AND THE DISABILITY COMMUNITY.
In this webinar, FPDN Community Advocate Tory Paasi will be presenting on Cultural Competence.
For community services to be culturally appropriate the service providers and the workers must be culturally competent. Cultural competence is not just knowing about other cultures, being culturally aware or being sensitive to other cultures.
Cultural competence is the knowledge, behaviours, attitudes, policies and systems that enable service providers and workers to work effectively in cross-cultural situations and respond to the needs of a culturally diverse population.
