About the Conference

The goal of the Cultural Competency Conference (CCC) is to support current and future practitioners by providing an event where they have the opportunity to gain a larger foundation within cultural competencies.  The conference is centered around presenters who are knowledgeable and/or immersed in different cultural communities sharing their experiences, insights, research and wisdom.
The CCC is hosted by MSP’s Student Engagement team with representatives from the Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Alliance (IDEA) and the Psi Chi Chapter at MSP. Students, psychologists, and members of the public are invited to attend.
Previous presentations have included a wide variety of topics, such as: “Building Competency: Considerations When Working with Arab Americans & Muslim Americans;” “Exploring Cultural Competency with an Invisible Orientation: Asexuality;” “Latina/o/x Psychology, Cultural Resilience, & Working with [email protected] in Therapy;” “Counseling Jewish American in the Age of the Alt-Right;” and “Neurodiversity: From Deficit to Celebrated Difference.”
