Are you culturally competent?

A new Cultural Competence Program (CCP) is now available to assist students and staff develop graduate attributes and professional development requirements.

WHY IS CULTURAL COMPETENCY IMPORTANT?

From both an education and an employment perspective cultural competency is important in meeting Griffith’s strategic objectives towards equity, diversity and inclusion.

Diversity fosters innovation, creativity and harmony and developing staff and students who communicate confidently cross-culturally are highly prized in the workforce.

Program structure

CCP has a range of online modules and resources designed to train people in the areas of cultural competence, diversity and inclusion.

There are animations and films, including real people telling real stories. Also included are fun, interactive activities, plus options for further reading.

CCP is complemented by The Cultural Atlas - a world class online resource providing specific information about a range of cultures.

The course was developed by SBS, Multicultural NSW and International Education Services who are market leaders in the areas of multiculturalism, cultural awareness, and education.
