Panel Discussion: Addressing issues affecting Latinos with a Cultural Competent Approach
Cultural Competence is now considered a standard when working with ethnically diverse populations.
In New Mexico, most social service agencies and non-profits organizations report working with high numbers of Latinos. This panel, composed of Latina(o)s, will address issues faced by many of our Latino clients and will give hands-on tips on how to make your agency more welcoming and effective when working with Latinos. The panel will also analyze data to assess whether the composition of the staff of agencies providing services to victims reflect the actual make up of the Latino population of NM.
