There will be focus given to the CRCC Code of Ethics (A.2., A.4., D.2., & L.1.) regarding increasing multi-cultural competencies and providing “best practices” to overcome unconscious bias. Often, cultural and attitudinal barriers are the biggest ones our clients face when seeking competitive integrated employment opportunities. We’ll explore our unconscious bias, perceptions, and stigmas while finding ways to rise above them!
