New Course from OIB-TAC: Cultural Diversity and Humility

OIB-TAC is excited to share that our continuing education course, Cultural Diversity and Competence, has been relaunched as a new course with updated content. This updated course covers the importance of personal cultural orientations, the effect culture has on interaction with consumers, and the impact of agency policies and culture on practice with diverse consumers. Case studies are included to allow for self-reflection and to facilitate the application of cultural humility in practice.
