Presenter: Lindsay Gannon, MPA, Evaluation & Communications Manager, Hart Consulting, Inc.
This 90 minute webinar will provide participants with a better understanding of what cultural competency means, how our understanding of culture impacts the way we interact and communicate with others, and how to take actionable steps towards becoming more culturally competent. Key concepts will include cultural humility, benefits of a culturally competent workforce and intercultural communications.
Lindsay specializes in policy development, program analysis, evaluation design, and grant management related to public health, health care, and justice issues including health equity, victim’s needs, obesity, community-clinical linkages, emergency department reductions, tobacco treatment, and behavioral health. Working alongside clients, Lindsay uses data collection tools, evaluation models, stakeholder input, and performance measurement to determine how well a program is delivering results and identify changes that would improve the program. She has a special interest in cultural competency and implicit bias. She conducts training on how to mitigate implicit bias and has used her understanding to recommend improvements to health care organizations in Maine and to help the Massachusetts court system address implicit bias in judicial evaluations.
*Registrants will receive their Zoom registration, including meeting details and the link to access the webinar, no later than 24 hours in advance.
