We Feed You, You Feedback

Snohomish Hall, Room 304 | Tuesday, February 4, 2014


Join us for a strategic conversation on cultural proficiency at Edmonds Community College, hosted by the Diversity Council. Light refreshments will be provided.  

What is a strategic conversation?  

A strategic conversation is an informal, but structured, discussion on a campus-wide topic that results in a clearer understanding of the topic and gets feedback from the campus community. It is similar to open-forum discussions or summits on specific topic areas.

How does it work?  

You will be provides an overview of the topic prior to the discussion and a guided discussion of the topic during the feedback session. Participants will have an opportunity to provide individual and group feedback on cultural proficiency including terminology for Edmonds CC, competencies, learning outcomes, and help with asset mapping.

What is the end product?  

The strategic conversation will help the Diversity Council get feedback on cultural proficiency resulting in the development of thoughtful and successful strategies to be included in the College Strategic Plan for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Ultimately, strategic conversations will help our college remain flexible and open to change by positioning us to listen to our campus community and learn from our collective experiences.

As in prior conferences, the primary focus is providing both information and skills-development opportunities that will help participants return to their communities better prepared to address the individual or institutional racism, cultural or religious intolerance, linguistic barriers, and the like that may limit the ability of those subjected to such treatment to obtain the food, health care or housing they need.
