Workshop Description

This workshop aims to support front line staff with a greater cultural awareness of working with diverse and multi-ethnic clients. 

In a multicultural city as Toronto and the surrounding GTA, our clients come from all over the world. They bring with them different perspectives and cultural practices. When those perspectives are not taken into consideration for program development or client interaction, we can further isolate individuals who are already struggling with their integration. 

While poverty does not discriminate, it certainly marginalizes those already living on the fringes. In Toronto, more than 55% of visible minority residents were living on less than $30,000 in 2016. As such, Poverty is Racialized. The most in need residents are often visible minorities living on the intersection of many barriers.  Intercultural awareness then must be understood in the context of social inequality, financial instability, poverty and institutional bias.  

This workshop will engage participants through innovative group activities, critical discourse and self reflection.
