Mission of the CRN Diversity Academy is to build an in-depth understanding of how to effectively and respectfully interact with individuals from a wide range of cultures; to maximize our opportunities to have meaningful interactions, thus providing the best care possible to our clients, while creating work environments that promote inclusivity and respect.
LOCATION and TIME: All trainings will be held at Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan, located at 3215 Eaglecrest Drive NE, Grand Rapids, MI. Most trainings will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Graduation and recognition opportunity: For those participants who complete the full series in a given annual season (all four trainings in 2018 for instance), there will be a Graduation Ceremony held at the following January CRN Meeting where the participants will be honored with a certificate amongst their peers. Their company will also be allowed to post our logo as a display of recognition of the diversity training they have achieved.
