  • Join us for a Cultural Competence Dialogue with James Wallace, the Director of the Office of Diversity, Equity and Multicultural Affairs (ODEMA) at Indiana University Northwest (IUN), on May 27, 2016 from 10am - noon.

    Mr. Wallace will provide participants with specific ways to foster culturally competent relationships with youth and families that maximize their potential to live outside of the throes of poverty. His desire to gain a deeper understanding of the systemic forces that affect educational outcomes for our nationā€™s youth has led him to pursue a Ph.D. in Urban Education at IUPUI.

    The workshop is FREE for family service workers, case managers, parent educators, providers, youth mentors, school educators and counselors, criminal justice professionals, and municipal employees -  thanks to funding from Geminus Community Partners.

    Location Provided by: IUN Library Conference Center, Room 105AB, Gary, IN
