These programs are designed to help our employees build the skills needed to lead change, contribute to improved processes, shape the County's future, and network with other County staff and programs.


Workplace Inclusion Workshop - Apr. 23rd & Oct. 22nd

Diversity Training, Cultural Awareness, Diversity and Inclusion, Cultural Competence, regardless of what the training is called, these are topics that need to be continually discussed throughout organizations to ensure that we continue to move in the right direction of simply being more inclusive of all people.


The Workplace Inclusion Workshop, which promises to be fun and interactive, provides participants with a deeper understanding of unconscious bias and how it impacts our personal and professional lives. We will also explore its effect on productivity, workplace relationships, and customer service. Once we understand our biases, we will learn how to increase our cultural intelligence as the antidote through a series of activities.

9 a.m. – 3 p.m. (lunch 12 – 1 p.m.)
Public Services Building, Auditorium
Log on to WISARD Learner Self-service, browse Human Resources / 2014 Training / Professional Development, select a workshop and enroll.

Our workshop facilitators believe becoming culturally competent is not a destination, nor is it just about figuring other people out. It is about becoming more aware of who we are in the context of the increasingly complex and culturally diverse world in which we live and work. It is a process, one of learning how to foster better relationships, how to be more productive, and how to improve job performance.
