Culturally Specific Knowledge for Effective Service Delivery

Ecotrust Conference Center 721 NW 9th Avenue
Portland

About this event

Guadalupe Guajardo, PhD, Senior Consultant
Nonprofit Association of Oregon

Continental Breakfast & Networking at 8:00
Presentation at 8:30

In the last 20 years there has been a substantial increase in the diversity of the racial and ethnic groups within our community. This increased diversity brings value as well as challenge. As nonprofit organizations, how do we flex our planning and service delivery systems to respond to the different needs, styles, and realities that come with different cultural frameworks? Join us on February 10 to find out.

This session of DLN will be lively, fun and informative! You will have “up close and personal” time to hear from cultural experts and ask questions that will help you more effectively serve your clients. Cultural informants from a variety of different socio economic, ethnic and racial backgrounds will address the following questions::

  • Why is it important to know about the history of people in this cultural group?
  • How do people in this cultural group approach social services?
  • In collecting information about individuals and families for records—what might offend people?
  • Is there a general cultural response to authority figures?
  • What are the best ways to offer help to people?
  • In family situations how are children, adults, and elders most appropriately approached?
