What people have said: 

 “I found the training extremely valuable and informative. It shone a light on how many different factors can influence a person’s sense of culture and personal beliefs, and provided a framework to better understand our own cultural responsiveness.” – Participant

CMY training really opened my mind to look at and understand individuals within their cultural context, and also to self-reflect on my own cultural biases. This understanding allows me to be more culturally sensitive when providing services to individuals in custody and when interacting with volunteers, colleagues as well as in my personal relationships.”  – Participant
