Lunch and Learn Summer Series
Cultural competence is the ability to understand and engage with people from different cultures. Every individual possesses a multitude of cultural identities. Cultural competency refers to an understanding and knowledge of different cultures and perspectives. Just Mediation Pittsburgh will host 4 speakers throughout the summer to increase our collective understanding of different cultures and backgrounds. A lack of cultural competency in the workplace can lead to miscommunication, conflict, and stunted productivity. A lack of cultural competency for mediators can lead to exacerbation of the conflict, a negative impact on parties’ self determination, and damage to impartiality. Please join us for any or all of 1 PM Lunch & Learn sessions. The format will be topic insight by lived experience from the guest speakers and direct correlations for mediators, followed by a discussion and Q&A section. Join us!
