Cultural Competency seeks to educate and train all levels of staff on the skills and competencies that enable employees, students and educators, community members, and others to interact effectively/positively in cross-cultural situations. Today more than ever we must embrace our differences. This is truly the only we will evolve as a species. If it is not for ourselves but more importantly for our children’s children.
