Roughly 14% of the U.S. population was born outside the country. Nonprofits regularly serve and employ people who live within cultures other than the White, Christian, English-speaking mainstream culture that out of which much of the curriculum and instruction methods used within the nonprofit and public sector come. As learning professionals, we can design and deliver learning experiences in English that offer a high level of cultural competency to create safe spaces of belonging. We can also invest the time and resources in translating and interpreting learning events and tools into other languages so people can learn in the language they prefer to learn in. Through this interactive session, you will gain insights, tips, and tools for how to design learning spaces with cultural and language diversity in mind.
