Cultural Awareness

We welcome a diverse culture for both, the women participants and the men and women on staff. Culture can be defined as the shared experiences of people, including their languages, values, customs, beliefs, and more. It also includes worldviews, ways of knowing, and ways of communicating. Culturally significant factors encompass, but are not limited to, race/ethnicity, religion, social class, language, disability, sexual orientation, age, and gender identity. Contextual dimensions such as geographic region and socioeconomic circumstances are also essential to shaping culture.
