Cultural competency is more than speaking the language and enjoying the food. It is a process of learning about different cultures, demonstrating respect for the ways in which others live and developing an openness to learn. Participants will gain knowledge of the current Latino population locally and nationally. In addition, participants study cultural traits common to many Hispanics and Latinos.
Walk One Hour in My Shoes takes participants on a journey toward cultural competence. Walk One Hour in My Shoes is interactive and designed to guide participants to:
Learn about Hispanic and Latino values and culture
Assess how our own culture influences our beliefs, values and attitudes
Apply knowledge in order to work more effectively with the Hispanic and Latino populations in Evansville.
