Beyond Color: Cultural Competency in Disaster Preparedness and Response

Peggy McCarthy & Francisco Ianni

Get ready to have some fun as you learn more about cultural differences and similarities that may surface as we all work together to prepare our communities to be better able to respond to small or great disasters. In this participatory session you will roll-play with other attendees using loosely prepared scenarios and scripts that will enable you to return to your jobs and current roles in society with a greater awareness of the importance of being “culturally competent”.
