MCPC Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Trainings
For those of you that joined our May Coalition meeting, you’ll remember that we discussed the opportunity for Coalition members to attend a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion series hosted by the National Conference for Community & Justice. These workshops will be held on Tuesday mornings throughout June, are open exclusively to MCPC members, and are completely free to attend! The series will be four mornings of training, with the final day including a workshop to develop an inclusive personal agreement for MCPC work.
Please head to this link to register. The password is MCPC-2021. Though we hope you attend as many sessions as possible, you can register for as many sessions as your calendar allows. Counselor, Social Work, Chemical Dependency Counselor, and Prevention CEUS are offered for the June 15 and 22 dates.
