Cleveland State Presents Bridging Cultures Spring Lecture Series

  • Wednesday, January 23, 2013

As a part of the Bridging Cultures Spring Lecture and film series, Cleveland State Community College presents “Building Respectful Living, Learning, and Working Environments” on Friday, Feb. 8 from 12:30-4:30 p.m. in the George R. Johnson Cultural Heritage Center.

Susan King, education and outreach coordinator for the Office of Equity, Diversity and Compliance (EDC) at Appalachian State University, is the facilitator for this three-hour interactive workshop that focuses on the fundamental and complex concepts of working together, learning together and living together in a diverse environment, by valuing and celebrating our differences. King’s presentation will explore these concepts in numerous ways and from various angles.

Ms. King completed the training modules "The Law of EEO" and "Harassment Prevention" at Cornell University IRA School, New York City, in April of 2010, and "Developing Diversity Training for the Workplace" and "Teaching Skills and Cultural Competency" with the National Multicultural Institute in Washington, D.C, in 2000 and 2004. She provides education modules on request to university units, departments, organizations, and classes. All workshops share the common theme of creating respectful living, learning, and working environments.

Ms. King has also facilitated or co-facilitated workshops for Appalachian District Health Departments of Watauga, Ashe, and Alleghany Counties, Ashe Alternative School, Forsyth Technical Community College, Gardner-Webb University, Lees-McRae College Faculty, Mitchell County Employment Security Commission's Worker Retraining Program, and the 2011 Senior Class of North Wilkes High School.

The Bridging Cultures program series is free to the public and is made possible by Merck Foundation, in cooperation with the Cleveland State Community College Foundation. For more information, call 473-2341.
