The Past is Present (and Future!): How Local Heritage Fosters Integration @ Greeley City Hall Community Room, Lower Level
Mar 6 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am

Learn more about Local Heritage and Integration!

A local study has shown a unique way that local history can bring cultures together. Dr. Mike Kimball is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Northern Colorado. He shares what he learned from a 3-year research collaboration in Greeley.

The project was a joint effort between UNC,  Centennial Village Museum, Greeley high schools, the Immigrant and Refugee Center of Northern Colorado, and families from local immigrant and refugee communities. This project found that through education and history, we can find commonalities and make deep connections. Greeley’s turn of the 20th-century immigrant past can help 21st-century newcomers build a sense of place and social capital in their new home.

Mar 29 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Improve Your Cultural Awareness! Help Implement Inclusive Programming!

Cultural awareness is important when working with diverse communities. This training is designed to engage in a rigorous discussion about five best approaches to learn about others. As well as ways to design and implement new programs. Attendees will leave with a clearer guide for how to activate personal learning. And to find ways to implement inclusive programming practices across the city of Greeley.

You’re invited to bring ideas.  How would you like to enhance your cultural awareness? What programming would you like to see in Greeley?

When we are eager to know more about a person, their heritage, or life story, we tend to dive-in without pausing to reflect on how that may impact the person. Sometimes, people’s identities, beliefs, and way of life position them to be spokespeople for entire groups. This approach for the inquirer to ask for information, while often well-intended, can be harmful. This class provides new approaches.

The instructor for the workshop is Talia Carroll, M.Ed. She is the director, Marcus Garvey Cultural Center at the University of Northern Colorado.

The City of Greeley Communications & Engagement Office offers free training opportunities. These classes promote diversity and inclusion in Greeley. Classes are free.  Please RSVP before the day of the class.
