NCERA 216 Webinar - Intercultural Competency Inventory and Project Implicit

Submitted by Debra Bolton

February 8 at 1:30 CT Webinar: http://univmissouri.adobeconnect.com/r3a362bn9va/

Existing research indicates that diverse groups perform better than their monocultural peers and, that the United States will be a majority minority nation by 2065. Yet many people recognize neither their own level of intercultural competence nor the several subconscious biases that may be affecting them.

In this webinar, we will explore two popular tools to gauge individual multicultural skills and attitudes. Useful for students, staff, faculty, and community partners alike, these tools address both conscious and subconscious components of the way we think and act around people who are different from us in meaningful ways. We will also discuss some of the ways these tools can be applied on and off a university campus.
