CCDI Webinar: What to do to be interculturally competent – Policing

Are you interculturally competent? What does that even mean? Intercultural competence (also called cultural competence) is the ability to communicate effectively and appropriately with people of other cultures. With Canada’s ethno-racial makeup changing daily, being interculturally competent has never been more important. So how does intercultural competence change in the legal/policing sector?

This webinar will introduce you to the concept of intercultural competence, including an understanding of the concept, issues unique to law/policing, and tips and tricks that individuals can action themselves to move toward being more interculturally competent.

Who should attend:

  • Industry specific – Legal sector / Policing: These webinars are targeted toward individuals within two specific industries: law (lawyers, paralegals, etc.) and policing (sworn members and civilians). While the subject matter may be the same (i.e.gender), how it plays out in a specific industry may be significantly different. This series is targeted toward anyone who works in either industry. The level of knowledge will be more generalized (level 1.0 to 2.0) however will have specific examples from the specific industry.
