Cultural Competency Training includes two-hour presentations, all-day and half-day workshops, and individual and group consultations. Supported by permanent and temporary exhibits and a rich assortment of educational materials, the presentations help educators develop the cultural competency they need to understand and communicate effectively, especially when dealing with students and parents of Arab and Chaldean descent. This is a program of the Arab American National Museum (AANM).
