 Improving Health Outcomes for Culturally Diverse Populations in Nebraska
People are People are People: Increasing Your CQ!
As more and more data is collected, we can see that Nebraska's population and demographics have changed in our communities.  We have developed a training called People are People are People: Increasing your CQ.
This training offers participants an opportunity to learn about cultural intelligence and the various aspects of culture.
The training is interactive and leads participants through cultural issues in a manner that encourages self-reflection and discussion. We utilize a variety of teaching methods including instruction, role playing, case studies, group discussions and technology/media.
People waiting in line but all grey and one person in color.

This training seeks to enhance:
  • an understanding of one's own culture
  • awareness and acknowledgment of differences
  • knowledge and skills for navigating the dynamic of difference

We will gladly customize the presentation to fit what is best for your agency or company.

All materials for the training are provided by our office for FREE. The training can be offered anywhere throughout the state of Nebraska. If you like more information or brochure on this training, please contact us at the information noted below.
